    I just had this same problem. This seems like a MAJOR bug (major has nothing to do with common--it just is very problematic).

    I just had this happen to me as well. It happened before about a month ago, but I had thankfully just synced and done a backup to my computer so was able to restore them. However, this time round I have lost a whole load of photos I only took yesterday that I hadn't got round to downloading/syncing/backing up yet.

    All I did was open the Photos app, and I was presented with the "updating photo library" screen. Then after this had finished, all my photos from the last 6 weeks have vanished from the Camera Roll.

    Interestingly though, they don't seem to have actually been removed from the iPhone, as if I open up the Photos app and switch to the Places feature, the photos are still shown on the map, and can still be opened up and viewed. So they appear to still be on the iPhone, just no longer in the Camera Roll library. :confused:

    Using Places, I can select the photos and Email them to myself in order to get a backup of them, but its really frustrating that they have just completely disappeared from the Camera Roll. :mad:

    Anyone know why this randomly happens, and how to get the photos back in the Camera Roll.
