Other things you can do to clean up the image: In astrophotography Along with taking a dark, cap-on, photo of the same length with the same settings to subtract from your actual image you can also take a "twilight sky flat". This can compensate for pixels on the sensor that are more or less sensitive than others. A description of the process can be found here: https://physics.bgsu.edu/~layden/ASTRO/OBSERVATORY/obs_instr_skyflats.htm Another thing you can do, though I'm not sure off-the-shelf cameras have the ability, is take a bias image/frame, or a picture of no exposure time. This will let you subtract the noise of the sensor itself. I think the best you could do is, with the cap on, take a picture of the shortest exposure you can.

That was it. Thanks! I figured it was something simple that I missed. The F-log format looks interesting. I'll have to mess with it some now.
I'm sure it's some stupidly simple setting somewhere but when I shoot video on my new to me X-T2 it looks washed out or grey. I figured it was some setting and tried everything I could think of. Nothing worked. The last thing I tried was film simulation. But that option is unavailable. It is greyed out / I can not access that menu in any way while shooting video. So two questions that may or may not be related: How to access film simulation while shooting video and what would be causing the washed out video? Thanks. Edit, I don't know if it matters byt when shooting video under the Q menu only the white balance, sharpness, face detection and lcd brightness are accessible.
