    Why are they taking up so much space? I just deleted thousands of photos (and yes, I made sure to also delete them from the recently deleted folder as well).

    One that's 30 seconds long. That's still no where close to 5 gb...

    weird. i have 2 videos, and says i have 629 photos that split between camera roll and photo stream and thats only taking up about 755mb. one reason why i didn't want the camera roll feature back because of the double up.

    Check your "deleted" photos and fully delete them
