Expodisc not part of this discussion.

I'm thinking that you mean WB filters like the Expodisc, which, truthfully does it's job VERY well in most conditions. OTOH, so does what is available in PP using RAW image, so it becomes a personal choice. Myself, I give the nod to the Expodisc because, assuming one does not have Photoshop, it is cost-effective as well as accurate.

The OP was perfectly clear in his enquiry, which was about potential improved results of using 80B colour conversion filters when conducting digital photography in tungsten light..

Expodisc therefore not part of this discussion.

Note: Expodisc originally designed as Incident Light metering attachment for TTL cameras. WB function was an afterthought capitalised after arrival of digital.
