Delete all on K-7 ?

Got a K-7 a few days ago and all seems good .. gradually learning my way around it after the K10D but have an annoying little problem.

When I first got it I could (like my K10D) look at my pictures and if needbe delete one by pressing the bin button .. but if I pressed it again it would ask if I wanted to delete all pics on the disk.

For some reason it is not doing this today .. I can delete one at a time but if I press the button a second time nothing happens.

I am presuming I have changed a setting but can't work out which.

Thanks.

Unfortunately there is no settings, it's an unwelcomed change in the K-7. Somehow Pentax deemed this feature too dangerous for their advanced users...

Even better way

I think the new way is better.

I don't have my camera in front of me so you may want to double check this.
When playing back use the rear e-dail to go to folder view and then you can delete by folder or all. It works better than having to select individual files or delete all on the K10D.

You can also just format the card.

All these tricks are OK but they are not as fast as a double click on the delete button.

On the K7 it is almost as easy, but instead of hitting the trashcan twice, as some butter fingers have done accidentally. They have moved the feature to the menu system in playback mode. Just push the menu button in playback mode and you will see the delete all function. No possibility of mistakes.

Thanks Jerome, a little better than the other ways .. still seems daft to me as imo the bin button is harder to get to now anyway.

Consider that there might be a reason for this. Most people want to keep what they shoot, I suspect the ones who take a picture just to delete it are in the minority.

Thanks Wheatfield but the posting of useless comments is no longer going to win you a K-x .. the competition ended a while ago now.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Interupting jackass.
Interupting....

And for the first time, yesterday I played with the "comparison" feature of the K-7. You can choose two of your images and place them side by side in the LCD.

I guess I have not noticed this delete all issue.

I figured it was still going, given the existence of threads like this one.
My bad.
