I find the idea that all of my photos, no matter in which folder should automatically be synced to G+ a bit ridiculous.
Is there a way to only sync a certain folder/album? I'm mainly interested in syncing my camera roll.

Launch G+ Photos app. Swipe right on the left edge to open up the menu. Go to "On Device". You can select which folders to be synced by tapping on the cloud icon on the right of the folder name.
Note: You have to turn on "Back up local folders" option in settings. Initially, all folders will be synced and you can selectively turn off for each folder in the "On Device" section.
As Google Drive is an option to the OP: I use an app called FolderSync, which support a load of cloud services (including e.g. Google Drive, Amazon S3, and Dropbox) as well as FTP/SFTP/FTPS to support your own servers. Using it successfully with SFTP and Dropbox, I can recommend its use:
So with Google Drive being acceptable, you could use FolderSync to define a specific folder pair, and thus sync only those folder(s) you wish.
Try Camera Album. This app automatically redirects captured photos to the selected album/directory. You can have multiple albums and quickly switch between them before taking photo. And with applications mentioned in previous posts you can synchronize only directories that you want.
On my phone running the latest stable version of Google+, only the camera roll is auto backup'd. There are several additional folders (downloads, Path, Instagram) that are not being synced. From your description, G+ currently does exactly what you want.
AFAIK there is no way to selectively sync photos with G+. But on Dropbox, by default only the camera roll photos are uploaded by default for cloud backup.
Still looking for other answers
I've found Gallery Drive Sync, an app that will selectively sync image folders when you want it to, not automatically (you have to go in and press "sync" next to the gallery for it to work). This can be a feature, but in my case it isn't since I'd like it to happen automatically.
