How to Rescue Photos from Canon 60D?

“I have a 4GB SD card that is often used on my Canon 60D digital camera. It was working perfectly all the time. But, after taking some wonderful shots yesterday, I connected this card to my laptop and a computer message prompted me to format it before accessing. Without giving a second thought I clicked on the format option. This erased the entire set of pictures saved in it. I had to firstly back up my card photos, but it’s too late now. Is it possible for me right now to get back all the pictures from Canon 60D camera? Please, help me and tell what I should do now. Thanks!!!”.
