Normally, every image on the current card is visible on your D800, but if you've got a lot of incriminating photos that you don't want your wife for boss or best friend to see, you can hide them using the Hide command. This is great if you're a whistleblower or a criminal or just generally like being sneaky. Here in the Playback menu I have Hide image. I can pick that and it asks me to select the image that I want to hide. So I am going to go in here and hide this last image here. This is going to be image number six out of six. I am telling you that by way of showing you how this is going to work.
So I've selected that. Now I hit the OK button. So if I go into Playback now, I see that I've got image 1/6, 2, 3, 4, 5, 1. It skipped 6/6. But there is this little tell here. Someone who is paying attention will notice that they're not able to view image 6/6. So in that case you might want to leave your camera in a metadataless view here. Hopefully they won't know how to turn that on. If you want to get the image back, go back to your menu, go back into Hide image, and say Deselect all, Reveal all hidden images? Yes.
And now I should be back to seeing 1/6, 2, 3, 4, 5, and there's 6/6. So that's a way that you can keep some of your images from falling into the wrong hands. Now, of course someone could still take the card out of your camera, dump into your computer, and have everything. But if all you're worried about is someone seeing images on your camera, that's a way of hiding them.
