Sony manufactures a line of digital cameras called the Cyber-shot, which ranges from point-and-shoot models to more advanced cameras with professional-quality features. All Cyber-shot cameras store digital photos on an internal memory card. The menu feature on the back of the camera allows for fast review of stored images, minor editing--such as removal of red-eye from subjects--and simple deletion to get rid of photos that don't make the grade. Deleting pictures is as fast as the push of a button.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn on the camera by pressing the On/Off button on top.

  2. 2

    Press the "Menu" button on the back of the camera in the lower right corner, then use the directional keys to locate and select stored photos on the Cyber-shot's memory card.

  3. 3

    Press the button next to the dustbin icon on the back of the camera. The screen will display a message asking whether the picture should be deleted.

  4. 4

    Use the up and down directional arrows to choose "Delete" then press the dustbin button.

  5. 5

    Delete all the pictures on the Cyber-shot memory card at once by pressing the "Playback" button to review the photos, then press the zoom out control, which is a rocker switch on the back of the camera at the top. This will display tiny thumbnails on the LCD screen of all stored photos.

  6. 6

    Press the button next the dustbin icon, then press the "Up" directional button and select "Delete all."

  7. 7

    Press the dustbin button to erase all images from the camera.

Tips and warnings

  • Memory cards with a larger storage capacity are available for the Cyber-shot, so it is not necessary to download and delete pictures so frequently.
  • Once a picture is deleted from memory, it cannot be restored.
