Lets say we take a photo which should not be seen by any other person. Option that allows to hide such photos, which would become visible or downloadable only after entering code (4-10 digits) would be usefull.
So no code, we cannot see or download photos marked as secret like they have never existed. We enter menu, put the code and if it is correct, we can se secret photos.
Of course, it will not protect photos by downloading through card reader, unless JPG and RAW data would be changed in a way that makes their reading impossible.

Workaround for now:
Currently you can create a folder outside main DCIM structure and use FileBrowser to select and move (cut-paste) files there.

Not the nice way to handle cards! :D
But the only really save way.

I'm looking for a feature like this too.  I would like to enable a "secure mode" switch in settings, so every video/picture taken will be saved to a folder out of DCIM.

Also, a trash, or recycle bin would be useful. This way, you can "delete" a picture and it would be moved to a RECYCLED folder instead of removed from card.
