How to Retrieve Photo and Video from Cameral Roll on iPhone/iPad/iPod?
Let’s take iFonebox (Win) together. If you’re a Mac user, the step is similar.
Step 1. Select iTunes backup file of your device for recovery
Install and launch iFonebox on your computer. Please select “Recover from iTunes Backup” mode. Then all the backup files are displayed here. You only need to select the one you want to retrieve photo and video.
Tip: Do not open iTunes and connect your iOS device to the recovery tool when you want to retrieve photo and video.

Not all lost photos can be recovered from iTunes backup, like you snapped a photo and accidentally deleted it immediately, or received a photo by your iOS devices and deleted it soon. But if you have synced your device with iTunes after you get the photo, and delete it later, then you could retrieve and recover it from iTunes backup.
The reason is that when you sync your iOS device, iTunes will automatically backs up the data on your device before the sync, and the backup file updates along with your sync every time. The data is backed up in a .sqlitedb file, which can't be previewed or extracted, so it's helpless even you find the backup file. But with iFonebox, you can extract specific contents from it.
An important thing you should know: Don't sync your iOS device with iTunes again after finding your lost photos; don't use your device after losing photos, if you don't have a backup. Or the photo will lose forever. This is very important.
