My GX85 auto white balance is awful on video

Its all over the place, but mostly too yellow.

Is this common to the GX85 or do I have a possible camera issue?

That sounds like a camera issue. If you set a WB, does it behave correctly?

Had it still been too yellow under outdoor shooting? Did the WB shift automatically under constant lighting condition?

How you shoot video? Use M-video on the Mode Dial or hit the red REC button without selecting M-video first?

FYI, I am happy eith my GX85. Wishing you xon't have a faulty camera.

All outdoor shooting.

These are long sessions like 6-8 hours continuous.

M mode.

In general the overall WB varies but is mostly too yellow.

I need to reset the camera do a few experiments and see how it does.

Oop, you use AC power or USB power bank?

M mode.

What is the Photo Style you are using? We might try to adjust on the Photo Style (it is shared with Still shooting ) if it is not happy to you.

I need to reset the camera do a few experiments and see how it does.

Unless you have adjust on the color tone of Photo Style, otherwise reset might do nothing to the Auto WB... I shall try Photo Style first.

We can adjust on the color tone of any preset Photo Style.
