I do a talking head show on YouTube with my Z6. I have the WB set to Auto because I also use the app to start/stop my segments (I have a co-host on my show so I do small clips instead of one long video file)

I've noticed massive color shift even within a 1-2 minute segment when I go to edit in post. This is consistent and happens every week that I record.

I shoot all other settings in manual.

Anyone else experienced this? It really makes it a pain to color in post.

I do not do this type of video; but I'd recommend a very simple solution: use manual white balance.

You can then fine tune it in post if necessary.

It takes about 2 seconds. Find something white in the scene (or bring a styrofoam cup), and then calibrate against that.

This is exactly what I normally do, but I need the control of the app to start/stop without getting up every time. And the app won't allow manual white balance for some reason.
