comment Is there a compact camera that offers secure deletion of pictures?
I hadn't looked into the specifics of how the iPhone stores or deletes photos, but I had been advocating for iPhones (or similar) for other reasons e.g. email, sms, mobile hotspot, etc. however cost was the prohibiting factor. It might be worth revisiting, though we'd need to be sure that we could lock down access to the photos and prevent emailing and texting of them, except by secure means. As a camera, they would certainly be good enough.

@BillN - Most likely the pictures will be transferred from outside the network i.e. from a laptop via VPN. We've discussed the possibility of wiping cards after they are in the laptop, or the camera is mounted over USB, but it would need to be a very easy to use process as this will be done by non-technical staff. Hence my hope to find a camera with a secure delete option; it would be simplest of all.

I have a Eye Fi card and I don't think it transfers without storing first (unless newer models/updates allow this). However, this wouldn't be an option as they will rarely have wifi access when taking pictures. Interesting idea though! I'll have to look into chdk and see what scope that offers.

@Blrfl - Your point is a good one. However, we don't need to protect the information to the "no trace" degree; we just need to prevent common undelete tools being able to recover it. If there's a camera that zeros out data when it formats or deletes, that would be good enough.

@PaulCezanne - Our staff aren't going to be willing or able take the time to fill the card. While we could do this, or erase it, with the card in a PC, I'm looking for an in camera solutions. Thanks anyway.
