iphone 5S storage

My iphone reports  photo and camera storage as 6.2GB. When I browse into the iphone icon in my computer, drill down into each folder and copy of the photos and videos it only amounts to 4.7GB. Why is this and is there photos/videos stored somewhere else. thanks

Because programs (software and operating system all take space). Any computer is like this, and it seems (if you look at the size of your software) that your space utilization is approximately correct.

That's what I was thinking, if it says 6.2GB then when I copy it it should be 6.2GB of photos. I will look at this again
