Canon has announced that14,000 PowerShot SX50 cameras will be recalled and the eyepieces replaced. Consumer Reports writes:

The CPSC states that the affected cameras are black and have serial numbers beginning with "69," "70," or "71" and have "1" as the sixth digit of the serial number.

For a free repair, contact Canon Customer Support Center toll-free at 855-226-3277 between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. EDT, Monday through Friday. You can also go to Canon's website for more information.
