Camera Roll/iPhoto Issue with iOS4?
I seem to be having an issue with the camera roll folder on my iPhone 4. Two issues, I am not sure if they are related.
1) On the phone, when I am in camera roll and try and delete a picture, it does not delete correctly. I hit delete and it either does not delete (it just stays there) or if it does, it leaves a black box where the picture used to be until I exit out of the camara program or take another picture which replaces the black box. Very ugly and there is a clear issue.
2) When I try to import pictures taken with a 3rd party camera app (ie hipstamatic), iPhoto does not recognize those pictures when it goes to import photos on off the phone. Pictures taken with the stock camara app appear fine but ones by Hipstamatic or other 3rd party apps only appear as blank thumbnails (a dotted-line box with no picure in middle). I can import them if I hit import, I just cannot view them when the iphone is initially connected for apreview of what picture I want to import off the phone...
Anyone else having these problems? I hope I described it well enough!

OP I can't talk about the 3rd party app because it is 3rd party that's a different bag of tricks. It sounds like the database file that holds the picture locations may have been become corrupt so what I would suggest to try is to take all the pictures off the phone in all apps. Then sync the phone and reboot the phone this should reset the file of sorts. Then first shoot a picture with the camera app and see what happens when you delete it. Then try your 3rd party apps and see what happens. This shouldn't be a re-occuring problem so if it happens again I would suggest taking it in to Apple.
Thanks, I did try your suggestion and deleted all photos. Problem comes and goes - I cannot figure it out. However, I do not think that it is just my phone as other people have cited the issue as well...I do hink it has to do with the picture database getting corrupted though...

I had the same blank thumbnail issue with the IOS 4 update. I tried this and it works.
With Iphone Explorer, open the Photodata folder. Save (to your PC), and then delete these three files:
Restart Photos in Iphone and it will rebuild your photo library with the thumbnails intact.
