Panasonic Lumix TZ3 Format Memory Card

How do you format a memory card that's inside a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ3 (review here). Panasonic made this feature annoyingly hidden on this camera, and if you were going through the settings trying to find it, you would be forgiven for thinking that there was no way to format a memory card in the TZ3. But there is. And once you know how to do it, you'll never forget how to do it. So here it is explained below.


Turn the dial at the top of the camera to playback mode (the one with the little "play" symbol icon). Press the Menu / Set button in the middle of the directional pad and scroll through the settings until you get to Format. It's the last option out of the "Play" settings. Select Format and press the right button on the directional pad. The camera will ask if you want to format the card - all data will be lost etc. Press Yes. And that's it, all data has been wiped. Until the next time amigo. -Still Paused
