Delete either JPG or DNG from one image on memorycard.

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to delete in my CL either the JPG or the DNG file on the memorycard when both formats are recorded due to the setting in the menu?

Thanks in anticipation. Thom.

No, there isn't. But why on earth should you want to do so?

You can easily select files during import to your computer, depending on your postprocessing/DAM program. However, I struggle to see why one would delete one or the other.

Yes, I know. A friend borrowed my CL for a while and set the combined format function in the menu which I discovered later. I wanted to delete the DNG's on the card to save memory space but it seems they are connected with the JPG's like siamese twins. That's why. Thom.

Deleting DNG's is the last thing to do IMHO. You can convert them later with new softwares and/or new tastes if any, which is harder to do with JPG's. Keep DNG's as preciously as film negatives, you won't regret it when you grow older :cool:.

Never delete DNGs for images you want to keep. They are far superior to JPGs when processed properly.

May I suggest that deleting images in camera is habit/procedure to be avoided. 

Off topic ...... but why? 

What is wrong with deleting an image in camera? I understand not “editing” in camera but is there some technical reason not to use the cameras delete button?

I delete images in the camera all the time and have never seen a negative effect, but it is supposed to mess up the file structure on the SD card.

In my experience I've had too many photographers relate disasters when cards have frozen, or the wrong (or all) image(s) have been deleted.

It's so easy to dump them once the whole card has been ingested.

Never had a delete-related disaster since I started out in digital photography. 2001, if memory serves.

Point taken, I have hovered the "are you sure you want to delete all "  box before.      NO not all !

Generally I treat digital like a roll of film.
Wait till I get home and take the the roll out of the camera after each shoot.
Oh and copy it in 2 places before messing with it 🙂

I never delete in the camera , always at home, a 128 or 256 gb cart is cheap nowadays

I always want my images in 2 places, memory card and my laptop, laptop and backup drive. In the later state I'll reformat my memory card. Having photos in one place make me worry. I have 2 32GB cards and 2 64GB cards, this seems to be sufficient for the CL.
