Using a handheld gimbal, can anyone recommend video/still camera settings for the Mavic Air indoors? Thanks in advance!

Like any camera in or out doors it depends on the lighting.

I always used a fixed white balance, never AWB. If it's florescent lighting try that, or play with the others, or even use custom and set it to what gives the look and feel you want.

If there are a lot of windows and it's bright outside try not to shoot at the windows. If you are using auto settings it may cause it to get to dark inside if you point it at a window. If it is set to manual ISO, and shutter speed and looks great inside as you point toward a window that is bright outside it will appear washed out.

I fly my Mavic Air in a Harley dealer last March.

@Frightwriter, Nice video at the Harley shop! Please What where your video settings on the Mavic Pro. Edwin
I shot that with my, Mavic Air about 2 years ago. I don’t remember what settings I used. Generally I set the white balance to whatever fixed setting looks best for the lighting.

Sorry I don’t have more help. If I could find what I did with the original footage I might be able to provide more info on it.
 
Thanks a lot. I have make a visual tour in a casino! I tried different shoots with adjusting the white balance. Finally I set the white balance because of so may light coming from the slot machines to Fluorescent. That gives me with the Mavic Pro a little more of a warm tint. Tnx
 
Casino! are you in Nevada?
