Hi. My friend has a 20D and he hasn't been able to figure out how to delete a selected group of pictures on the camera. All? Easy. Just 1? Easy. But there doesn't seem to be a way to delete a group, which would be helpful after he shoots a sequence that doesn't work out. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

- Ty

1 at a time as the firmware doesn't allow specifc batch deletion.

What you could do is see if you can find an email address for Canon and propose that option in a later firmware release!

There's a way and it's easy to do, it just takes a bit of time. All you have to do is go through and lock the ones you want to keep (a little key will appear saying the image has been locked) then you go to erase all and execute that. All images except for the ones that were locked will be erased. Naturally, you cannot lock them, then format the card, but you can erase a group all at once like stated. Good luck!
