    Are photos and camera roll the same?

    When I go into photos, there is a choice of photos, photo stream, albums and places.
    Photos has all my photographs and they seem to stay there unlike photo stream. When I go into albums there is something called camera roll, I think it has all the same pictures (although I'm not sure there are so many I get confused trying to check back and forth). What is the difference between photos and camera roll? Why do I have two things that, at least to me, seem to be the same?

    Photos shows all pictures, including those synced through iTunes or imported from a camera. Camera Roll only shows pictures that you have taken, or created and saved on the iPad. Screen shots also show up there. If you've never imported or synced photos to your iPad, they would be the same.

    Also can you recommend a site/ book/reference where I can get a better understanding of camera roll versus photos versus photostream and why the numbers are different? Again TIA.

    Do you think of the iPhotos app?
    If you're thinking of the built in Photos app: camera roll is a part of it.

    iPhoto is an app available in App Store. Here's the link, you'll also find more information there:
