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

Press the REC button. A red tick will show up in the top right corner on the selected images.

When finished, press the DEL/trash button.

"Are you sure?" Yes. This will delete all selected images.


Very easy: use the (rec) button when you browse your photo on display mode

    What does the rec button do? – MikeW Aug 4 '15 at 19:15
