Yes you can but only by connecting to your computer,
1. Connect iphone to computer
2. Once recongized, go to My Computer and "iphone Camera" should come up
3. Open and ctrl-a then delete all
There is currently no way to do this on the phone itself thanks to retarded devs at apple.

I know this is an old post, but I thought I would put my 2 cents in. I just installed a free application called Roll Swap. It allows you to swap the current camera roll with a different one. You can back up your photos how ever you want to, click and drag (pc) or iphoto (mac) swap the roll with the app and delete the application. When you delete the application, all data gets deleted with it. Make sure you have a copy of the photos you want to keep before you get rid of the application.

There's a feature that does this now. Go to photos app, tap on camera roll or whatever album it may be in then tap the top right corner button & select all the unwanted pics then delete.

When I plug my iPhone into my XP pc, up pops the camera wizard to ask me if I want to copy the photos to my PC. One of the options there is to delete the photos after copying. Works fine for me.

Can you delete the entire camera roll without syncing or uploading them somewhere? What about if I have 900 pictures and I don't want to save any and I want to delete them all at once?
* I was told my IPhone doesn't work well if I have 900 photo's stored on the camera roll, which shocked me since I always hear how you can store 5,000 to 25,000 albums or dozens of full length movies, so I figured whats a few hundred pictures? Then again, I thought Milli Vanilli were good singers ... Shows you how little I know.
