Deleting multiple pictures at once from Camera itself
Can not work out how to delete multiple pictures at once from the camera itself without placing into station??
I have searched the manual with no luck, but that does not mean its not there, any suggestions??
Have a Nikon Coolpix S5, great camera except for this??

That depends on how you transfer the pictures. Most programs simply copy them, without deleting the originals. Some give you the option of deleting the originals after the copy. I recommend against using this, since you're going to want to make sure you've got them copied before deleting the originals.
If you want to delete the pictures, format the memory card AFTER you finish the transfer.
Personally I wouldn't be using the camera software if it's deleting images without the command to do so.
What you can do is purchase a card reader with multiple memory card ports that way when you do get another camera the reader will have the port for the memory card.
Anyway the reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader as an external hard drive (Mass storage device) Depending on your operating system you should have an application called "My Documents" Open a new folder I generally use the date and img. then insert the memory card into the reader and the computer will either bring it up on the desk top as a hard drive or you may need to co fetch it in "My Computer" (I don't know your system) once that's done you can open the picture files copy and paste them into the new folder. Then you just need to open your camera software program and click on open and go to that file.
Once you have your pictures secured on the computer Hard Drive then format the memory card.
Formatting clears all the surface and makes the memory card ready to accept new picture data.
I suspect you have been deleting pictures and deleting pictures again and again well, you should be formatting after each time you download the pictures to the computer.
I know that will solve the problem and you can use the same system when you get a new camera
Are the pictures on a memory card? In that case, you're much better off formatting the card. If you continue to delete unwanted pictures, you'll fragment the card and ultimately you'll have problems. Every day somebody posts here with that problem. Formatting cleans things up.
If the pictures are in internal memory, select Internal Memory Tool from the Setup menu, and you can format the internal memory, deleting all the pictures. My earlier comments hold true here as well.
If you insist on keeping some pictures and deleting others, then go into the index (thumbnail) mode. Press the trashcan button, then select [Select] with up/down, then press *. Select images with the arrows, then press * to display the delete indicator on the selected pictures, Press the trashcan, select [OK], then press *.
Turn on your camera and go to menu select set up. Then select memory stick it is under the highlighted camera, Then click on format. Go to ok then click ok. Then your camera will read all data in memory will be erased. Then click OK. Now your on your way to a clean memory stick.
what you can do is transfer those pictures to a computer before deleting the pictures in the camera. whenever your take pictures, they are directly stored to the memory card. accordingly to your preferred memory storage. so if in doubt, save your pics to a computer before deleting.
