Firstly, STOP using the device. If you plan to recover any files using tools that can do that, you gotta make sure you don't over write anything.

I am going to link you to a file recovery post from a while back.

Recovered Data
Is there any way to recover data off a formatted hard drive?

Here's the tools that I would try -
Scalpel - it's command line, works from a text file that holds the file types and associated headers and footers.
FTK Imager - A really cool program. GUI. Very indepth.
Photorec - Never tried it myself, but the reviews seem good from those posts.

Well, if you can mount the device as a USB then you should be able to use FTK.

One of the other posters in the linked threads mentioned using photorec with a SD card.

With scalpel, I think it likes image files, so if your a linux user, you'll use dd for that.
There's a bit of a tutorial in the linked thread for scalpel.

I can't say for sure about the other programs, but I know for sure that Recuva reads my phone when I mount it no problem.

Accidental deletion of images, media corruption, virus infection and software failure can lead to permanent loss of images from a digital camera and other storage devices. If you want to extract the lost or deleted images, just use Kernel for Digital Media tool. It’s an efficient third party software that completely retrieves the lost images from digital camera and restores them for further use.

There is a solution to the problem, the photos which you feels are deleted is not exactly the truth there is a way to recover the data and that is you can recover the pictures. To do picture recovery from camera you just need the software to be download from internet and to run on the system. Or you can use the back ups if enriched with.
