get a nikon instead!

Nikon superzoom cameras have bad optics, hence the bad IQ. A friend of mine bought Nikon 20-30x zoom camera (I don't remember the exact zoom) and there were tons of chromatic aberrations and very nasty corner softness.

Kind regards.

Really Martin? And your reliable source for this? Fact is that Nikon makes a very good power zoom/bridge cam..just as Canon does.

OP: are you certain your battery is fully charged? Was the lens cap on when you tried to power it up? The SX50 has a very good reputation, but entirely possible something is wrong. A exchange is easy. Enjoy the camera..it's one of the best bridge cams (along with the Panasonic FZ200, Nikon P510, and for some, the Fuji HS30).
