Tip Hook Your Digital Camera up to Your Television

Looking at your just-shot pictures on a tiny LCD viewfinder is great fun, but for a real blast, attach the video cable that came with your camera to your television set. Then plug it into your camera's Video port (often identified as AV Out), activate the playback mode, and enjoy watching your pictures from your favorite couch or easy chair.

TO DELETE OR NOT TO DELETE ...

A digital camera usually can delete individual frames, mark several or numerous photos for batch deletion, or do a global (complete) deletion of everything on the memory card. But do you really want to? Remember: once it's gone, it's gone for good. Here are our thoughts on when to delete and when not to:

■ Don't bother deleting at all if you have plenty of space left on your memory card. You can always do it later, in the computer, where you'll have a larger screen that will allow you to make a more informed decision about the quality of the image.

■ Or, delete the really obviously bad pictures to preserve your reputation as a photographer (especially if you plan to show the pictures from your camera) and to make room for more images on your memory card.
