X-A1 - Help

Hiya folks.

I am lost, or stupid, or both. In my defence, I learned all my technical photography with film and I tend to just let digital cameras do their own thing. Apparently I can't do this with the X-A1.

When I got the thing a few years ago I was excited for it, but when I did my first photo-shoot where I needed the photos to be good, the results were awful. Luckily I had my phone and one of my Lumix's with me too so I did end up with some results.

This is what I am getting with just about everything I take:

What am I doing so wrong? A $100 phone could take this perfectly... And this was taken with pretty much every auto setting I could find on the thing set to remove as much operator error as possible.

This is the EXIF data from that photo, it seems to be a pretty long exposure but other than that, the ISO is 400, it's a wide lens... And again, any other digital camera could have taken that photo perfectly so it's obviously something I am doing wrong.
