    is there a way to lock the white balance in between photos? when taking a mosaic of photos the whit ebalance changes a lot depending on what is below the craft, causing some photos to appear almost purple compared to the others.

    Just set your WB to a value under custom and leave it at that.
    Auto WB algorithms are notoriously flakey - Even on my Sony F55 I set a value (usually around 5500 for daylight and leave it.) The lower colour temp at the end of the day gives a more reddish appearance and therefore (in my opinion) looks more natural to the eye rather than compensated WB to bring white back to neutral.

    Any adjustments can be made in post.
