Cloudy photos with PowerShot SX50 HS

I have really only tried the P setting (where I set the ISO to 1600, because that worked well on my T3i) and the Auto setting. But my pictures all seem hazy, cloudy, not vividly clear. They are in focus, not blurred, just not vibrant. It is really bad on indoor pictures, but somewhat true of the outdoor pictures as well. (Also I notice that if I zoom way in on the photo on the computer, it is very grainy--perhaps that is normal and not diagnostic here?)

Outdoor--not too hazy, but very grainy if zoomed...is that okay? Still, not vividly brilliant...?

Indoor--just not the quality I would expect...either P setting or Auto, can't remember.

I know it's a great camera, so I have to assume there are things I can do to make my pictures better. Any suggestions?
