Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Protecting and deleting images, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
There are a few different philosophies about deleting images.…Some people like to delete images that they think are bad so that they don't…drown in image a lot when they start their postproduction process.…Other people say you should never delete an image, because you never know…whether it might be useful or not later.…For the sake of the discussion let's split the difference and say that there…will occasionally be images that you know will have zero utility later.…Those images where your finger is in front of the lens, or you left the lens…cap on, for example.…Your camera provides a number of ways to delete images as well as to lock images…so that they can't be deleted.…
Now I know I said earlier that you should always use the Format command to erase your card.…Nevertheless, there are some uses for the erase images command.…If I go in here first Playback menu into Erase Images I see a few different options.…I can erase all images in the current folder or on the card.…I definitely always want to use format in place of this.…
