Sony A7R II stills mode for video?

I always keep my A7R2 in M for recording video.  It's especially useful for shooting in bright sunlight because the horrible 'feature' where the viewfinder brightness dims when recording 4K video only kicks in in M mode after you start recording, so you can frame a shot before losing visibility.  In movie mode it pre-dims the viewfinder even before you hit record.

Have you checked if you can do a custom WB in the custom presets 1 or 2? I have an A6300 but should be the same on A7R2. I've never tried doing it with custom WB before.

I set SS, aperture and picture profile in the custom presets for fast access to my video settings. I use the regular M mode for photos.
