Deleting files in K-1

Hi Guys,

Totally stupid question, but how do I delete a folder from the memory card in the camera? I see the trash icon on the display but cannot figure out how to delete selected images. Is there a separate delete button I just can't seem to find?

Thank you!

To delete an entire folder, assuming you're viewing a single photo in playback mode:
1. first use the e-dial to zoom out to the folder view (2 click)
2. highlight the desired folder
3. press the trash can button
4. confirm

If you want to delete specific images within a single folder:
1. first use the e-dial to zoom out to the image listing (1 click)
2. press the trash can button
3. use the 4-way pad and the OK button to make your selections
4. press the trash can button again and confirm to process deletion

The screen tells you what each button does in all of these contexts, so you should soon get the hang of it
