    New to the iPad and photos a little different than iPhone.
    When I open "photos" have headings at top for "photos, photo stream, albums". Looks like everything that shows on "photos" also shows under "albums" in "camera roll". Why and is that taking up twice the space??

    There's only one copy of each photo. When you see them in multiple albums, they're just links to the one copy, so there's no extra storage being taken up.

    What firmware version are you on? I don't have Camera Roll since I upgraded to iOS 5.1. I have Photos, Photo Stream, Albums, Events and Places on iPad 2. On iPad 1, I have Photos, Photo Stream, Albums and Places.

    From what I recall, Camera Roll became Photos on iPad 2 after upgrading to iOS 5.1.

    Adding: I still have Camera Roll on iPhone 4S. If that's what you're asking, I think Camera Roll on iPhone is the equivalent of Photos on iPad.

    Talking about iPad 3.
    Yes I have same headings at top. Photos, photo steam, and albums. But under albums I have camera roll as an album. The pics in camera roll are same as in "photos".

    Did you maybe create an album called Camera Roll at some point and synch it to your iPad or iPhone? Otherwise, don't know why you have Camera Roll as an album. Maybe someone with a new iPad will come along and answer.

    Wonder if it could have anything to do with iCloud sync with iPhone.

    Is this your first iPad and did you set it up as a restore from your iPhone backup on your computer? If so, it has just taken the camera roll from your iPhone and added that as an album on your iPad since the camera roll does not appear natively on the iPad.

    Camera roll is the folder for the pictures that you take with the iPad. Every time you take a picture, it goes to camera roll.
