Accidently formatted memory card-seem to have lost pictures that were on it

\015 I was trying to get some settings right, and accidently formatted the memory card that was in the camera, and it contained several pictures. Is there any way to retrieve them? Is there some sort of an internal memory that I can access to retrieve them? Thank you!\015

Hello Dear,
\015\012There is no internal memory present in any of the Canon Cameras but you can take your Card to a data recovery expert and your photos can be retrieved 100%.
\015\012You are suggested not to use this card any more, as if over written there will be NO chances for Data Recovery.
