I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC L580 and it states that the memory is full. As i dont have a manual how do i delete what is held in the memory please cheers

Are you sure of the model number? I can't find anything about a Lumix DMC-L580. There is a Lumix DMC-LS80. Make sure that you save any pictures before deleting them. Also make sure to have fresh batteries or the camera connected to AC power. If the camera runs out of power, the process will not complete.

To delete pictures from the internal memory, slide the recording/playback switch down. (The switch to the upper left of the arrow keys on the back.) This puts the camera in Play Back Mode. Use the Up/Down arrows (if needed) to select normal playback mode and press Menu/Set (in the center of the arrow keys). The delete button is the one on the right side below the arrow keys. Use the left/right buttons to select a single picture. Press delete. Press the left arrow to highlight Yes. Then press Menu/Set to confirm deleting the image. To delete multiple pictures, use the down arrow to get to Multi Delete or All Delete (instead of the left arrow). Press Menu/Set.

For All Delete, you may see an option to choose All Delete or All Delete except (star). The star indicates Favorites. If needed, pick one, press Menu/Set. Use the left arrow to select Yes and press Menu/Set again.

For Multi delete, use the left and right arrows to navigate through the stored pictures. Press the down arrow to select an image to delete. When you have marked all of the pictures that you want to delete, press Delete again. Press the up arrow to select Yes and press Menu/Set to initiate deleting these pictures. (Note: if a picture is protected, pressing the down arrow will result in On icon blinking red.)

The manual for DMC-LS80 is available from Panasonic support here: . The current link to the manual is . See page 20 for the section on selecting the mode. See page 35 for deleting pictures.

I hope this helps.

(if you have a memory card in the camera, you will need to do the delete steps in two steps. Delete all (or multi) pictures from the internal memory and the memory card separately.)

I have a 4 GB memory card on my Lumix camera. I have downloaded all videos and photos to my iPhoto on my MAC, but the memory card keeps saying full. There is nothing on the camera as far as I can see. ...

Hi, did you click the option to erase the photos from the card after you imported them into iPhoto? It could be that the images are still on the card and that iPhoto has just deleted the directory.
If you are sure that the photos are all on your Mac then the best thing is to use the camera's menu and reformat the card.
I have made a point of NEVER letting iPhoto delete the pictures but I delete them manually in the camera once I know they are safe in iPhoto. However, I am finding that I am no-longer deleting the photos from the card - when it is full I put it aside and use a new one - they are so cheap now - way cheaper than film is.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FX30. Why aren't there SD memory cards in 4gb or higher? Can I substitute any of the other SDHC cards?

There are no SD memory cards 4GB or larger because the Secure Digital standard limits card capacities to 2GB. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the DMC-FZ30. You will need to stay with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

How do you remove photos from the internal memory of lumix dmc-fz28?
