Did you already try to reset the phone by holding the sleep and home button until the Apple logo comes back again? You will not lose data doing a reset.

For some users deselect the photo sync option and syncing again after the photos were deleted solved the problem. You may also try to delete the photo cache before. iTunes: Understanding the iPod Photo Cache folder
