SUMMARY: A dedicated trash can button on your digital camera may make it easier to remove undesired photos when bracketing or experimenting with recording settings.
Especially if you are a beginner and need to shoot lots of photos for practice, or even if you are an experienced digital photographer who knows that bracketing can help ensure great photos in difficult lighting situations, ensure that your digital camera has a dedicated "delete" or "Trash can button". This way you can remove undesired photos quickly without having to navigate through menus.
Many digital cameras even let you eliminate photos as they are being saved to memory. After you take a picture, the resulting photo remains on the LCD for a couple of seconds. In this timeframe you can decide to stop saving the photo if you decide the lighting didn't work, the composition was not tight enough, etc.
