The white balance coefficients Nikon are using for flash are between cloudy and shade.

Thanks for confirming Iliah.

I knew a long time ago that the D5 and D810 were writing what I thought were odd WB values into the raw file.  But I never cared to investigate because I always set my own WB in post to my liking.  It didn't matter to me what Nikon was doing with their presets.

But I'm glad that you prompted me to actually test out the WB of the flash output.  It was a learning experience to find out that Nikon was actually not far off in the WB coefficients they were writing to the raw file and that speedlight output is actually a lot cooler than traditionally believed (or at least as stated by the manufacturers).
