    I've seen several threads already dealing with the removal and photos from photo roll individually and also with removing sync-ed photos...

    My question is: Is there a way to delete ALL of the photos taken on the iPhone on photo roll quickly?

    I think it's ridiculous to have to click the little trash can on every single photo I want to delete (seeing as I currently have over 100 on it).

    Any ideas? Something I'm missing?
    Shouldn't there be a "Delete All" button somewhere?

    PHX, AZ.
    I use Mobile Finder to delete the "/var/Mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE" folder and then recreate it.
    Fastest way I can think of unless I were attached to my PC.
    Then I just nuke it from within Iphonebrowser.

    After you sync it it gives you the option of deleting all photos. You could probly take a pic, resync it with your mac, and then choose that option and have them all deleted.

    I guess I'll just have to clear them after importing to iPhoto... not too inconvenient, but still... I would have liked to see a clear all button on the iPhone itself.

    Thanks for y'alls help.
