I assume you're using auto WB?Yep, I've had both if those problems. I love the platform but the camera has it's issues. In general, it's one of the better (best maybe?) cameras on a turn-key drone, but a fixed aperture lens on a 1/2"+ sensor runs into limits in certain situations. From high up things stay pretty consistent, but once you get med-close elements in the frame things often go south for me, inconstant Color Balance and Exposure's, . . I also find weird Color Balance performance as your position to the sun changes. It's a bit frustrating as it is not consistent so even avoiding situations that often trigger the behavior don't necessarily guarantee you wont have unusable still elements . . Bummer! That being said, I am getting good results bracketing for HDR and am constantly amazed how stable the shooting platform is, . . I try and avoid the weak performance areas of this camera and get the best out of this rig while I wait for the next generation camera. Dreaming of a 1 inch sensor with aperture control and a 16-50 equivalent zoom . . . come'on DJI hurry up!

Hmmmmm.....interesting.Thanks for the reply/insights, but nope, not using AWB (one could make that assumption when inconsistencies are mentioned), . . actually, after exhaustive testing, to generate the files I need to work with I've ending up using "cloudy" warmer during Florida daylight, as "daylight" (6K) in the Inspire also often generates (but not always) some nasty stuff in situations when leaves and small branches/twigs are backed by the sky, . . it often "bakes in" undesirable blue/purple into these areas that can't be removed in post, . . and if you send those "blue goo" where leaves meet sky (that's what I call the phenomena) bracketed shots through HDR software they are only emphasized. Also I find "Daylight" CB on this rig causes purple shadows that are also difficult to remove without causing issues with the global blues values that I want. My solution to avoid this is to shoot warmer "cloudy" (no blue/purple goo, or blue/purple shadows generated), run the raws through HDR and then cool it up after the fact with the rest of my post adjustments This is a solvable workaround for that issue, but the other inconsistencies are striking at times, I'm chalking it up to being just the nature of this camera.
FWIW I'm on my second camera (don't ask ) so I can confirm the performance was not a one off related to my first camera. I'm a professional Photographer with much experience shooting and editing an every environment that there is. I jumped on this thread as I see very few posts regarding inconstant CB performance the stills side of the Inspire, . . that would point me to believe I have a unique issue with my rig, but the same performance with 2 different cameras points to the opposite.
You mentioned you shoot 6K, . . are you simply referring to "Daylight" and it's equivalent or is there a way to set a custom CB that I'm missing?
