    Does GX7 allow custom white balance in the movie recording mode?

    My GH1's custom white balance is quite handy, but the movie mode forces AWB. A custom WB in the movie mode will improve video a lot. I've downloaded and read the GX7 manual, but it doesn't say one way or another.

    Can a current GX7 user chime in?

    Yes it does, but only before hitting record button. Not sure if you meant if it allowed changing while recording like how you can change ISO

    That's exactly what I was looking for. I'm not even looking to change the WB during shooting. I'm just hoping it lets me choose WB in video, which it seems to do. In the first generation Panny that I have, it always reverts to AWB in the movie mode and the color comes out very funky sometimes.

    If so then it definitely does. I just tested it and changed the temp to 2500K before recording. So blue. :D
