Anyone experience this and know what the deal is?


My phone has recently been wiped and restored as a new device to address a very large "Other" situation.   I diligently backup my photos regularly to my PC, and erase the local copy on my phone.   So, my camera roll is empty.


My iCloud backups have been creeping larger and I see that the Camera Roll backup component of my backup is now over 600MB.    I would assume this number should be 0MB or very close to it, especially since last night's automatic backup occured after I transferred off over 150 pictures.


Incidentally, my iPad has an empty camera roll as well and it too has a backup but at a much smaller size of 6MB.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2
