The manual of the Olympus OMD E-M5 says it is possible to select multiple images for deletion, but does not mention how.

Sorry if this sounds like a silly question but, how can I select multiple images for deletion?

So far, I honestly could not find out a way to do this.

I honestly wouldn't do this. Ever. It is too easy to make a mistake and then your pictures are gone! SD cards are cheap, download them, and delete them off your computer. –  Paul Cezanne Dec 20 '12 at 17:38
@PaulCezanne Good for you :-P When I can plan in advance and everything works "as planned" I delete images using my computer. The situation that motivated my question was having a full card while shooting and having by mistake loads of old images inside the card. "Not as planned" ;-) –  Francisco Jan 8 '13 at 15:47

When in play mode, press the OK button and it should highlight that it's been selected.

When you've selected all the ones you want, then press the delete button and OK again.

At least that's how it works for their DSLRs.

EDIT: OK, just tried on a friends camera. It's the REC button. A red tick will show up in the top right corner on the selected images.

Strange that it doesn't say that in the manual?
