My son accidentally deleted all the pictures from my internal memory and the memory card of my camera.

The software that is available to retrieve data on computer hard drives, can it be used to retrieve data on the camera and/or SD memory card?

R-Studio can apparently recover files from such a device. "recover my files" also works well. Trial both if needs be. Don't use the SD card for anything in the meantime.

Most apps that claim to be specialized on recovering deleted photos from cards are pretty expensive. I don't see why the 'usual' recovery software shouldn't work though.

Here's tutorial that specializes in free recovery software:

Take special note of the commandline tool PhotoRec.

Good luck.
