    On my current iPhone, I have 700+ photos in the camera roll and about 15 albums.

    When I get the iPhone 5 and set-up from an old backup file, will it place all my photo albums on the new phone or will it only place all my photos in the camera roll on my phone, making me re-create albums?

    Whatever is on your current phone should replicate on your new phone. That includes all your settings, texts, call history, etc...everything.

    If for some reason all of the photos and albums that are synced from iTunes do not come back, they will the next time you sync. When you restore a device from the backup, it literally treats the new device as the old, right down to the name. As such, the connection with iTunes is re-established as it was and will perform as it did in the past.

    with icloud only your camera roll will be restored but with itunes backup & restore you should get albums as well
