Default Mental Ray rendering - what camera settings?

I'm using Mental Ray to render a particular scene. I've tweeked everything to get it to look exactly the way I want it, but I've been using the Perspective view for test renders.

Now that I'm ready to render through an animated camera, I'm seeing some real problems. When I render through the camera, it's like the contrast is SUPER high and the image is burned out.

Are there settings I can use to make the camera render the same way the perspective view does? Or otherwise, are there settings that I need to change in the camera so that it works with the lighting I've already set up?

I could be WAAAY off base here, but I believe your cameras environment/background color might be set to white.

Set it to black and see if that helps

thanks, that was a good suggestion. I checked, though, and it's already set to black. Damn.
