Default Camera trouble - burned out/high contrast images

I'm using Mental Ray (including MR Sun/Sky) 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.

But now I've added a camera, and when I render through it, it's like the contrast is SUPER high and the image is burned out. Is this an aperature setting?

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?

Found it.

Since I'm using MR Sun/Sky, it was in those tabs. The "mentalrayGlobals" tab > Rendering > Render Camera

I just had to point it to my new camera. Just a heads up for anyone else that may run into this.
