You can delete photos from your SX130 IS in two ways:
To Delete Photos Individually:
  1. Press Playback Mode button (looks like a play button and is located on the top right on the LCD-side of your camera)
  2. The last image you took will appear on the LCD screen.
  3. Use the Left & Right arrow keys or turn scroll wheel to cycle through your images
  4. Once you find an image you want to delete, press the Trash button. The image will be erased.
  5. Press the Playback Mode button or the FUNC/SET buttons to exit when done
To Delete ALL Photos
  1. Press the MENU button (bottom right button on LCD-side of camera) to bring up the Menu screen
  2. On the Playback tab (Looks like a Play button icon), use the arrow buttons or turn scroll wheel to scroll down to Erase. Press the FUNC/SET button.
  3. You now have three options Select, Select Range, and All images. Select will allow you to delete individual images, Select Range will allow you to select a series of images, and All images will delete all images from memory. This last one is the option we are looking for.
  4. Use the arrow keys or scroll wheel to choose All images
  5. Use the arrow key or scroll wheel to select OK when the Erase confirmation screen pops up.
  6. Your images will be erased!

How do I erase images on my power shot a570is camera i get the erase images screen on my camera but am unable to activate erase command because the screen does not get bright

Once your on the erase screen. Navigate to the erase button by pressing on the side arrow of the circular control on the back of the camera. Once the "erase" is highlighted, you can select by pressing the center or set button. You may need to confirm by pressing again. You can also erase all by accessing the menu and then navigate to the ERASE ALL on the menu and hitting the set button.

I have just cleared all my pics off scim card by mistake. i was resetting camera

did you reformat the card or just erase them? If you just erased them they can be recovered. If you reformatted the card you will not be able to recover them.
To recover 'accidently' erased images go to to download Image Rescue. It works!!
There are lots of others that do the same thing from other companies, but they will usually charge you. I trust Lexar and I believe it was free! Fortunately only had to use this once - but it worked! Good luck!

How do i erase all pictures in one go from olympus x-820

You go to the menu in Review mode and on the Play tab you will see a function for Erase and under there is a function called All Erase. This will erase all of the images at one time. There is also an option to go to Setup and go to Format option. This will also erase all images at once but they will be gone permanently from the memory card.

I want to erase a video, but not "erase all images"

Careful, the way you're doing it would actually erase everything. Use that way only after you've downloaded all your pictures and videos to your computer.

The way to erase a single image or video is to go into picture/video review mode. Advance so that you can see the video you want to delete on your LCD screen. Then press the "trashcan" button on the back of your camera once. It may ask you "delete this video?". Select "yes".

Erasing images from the camera

Play back the images, go to the one you want, and press the down button. It should ask you if you want to erase that one image.
