Well, I know that if we did not backup data in iTunes or iCloud, we Apple users still can recover deleted data from iOS devices. I have just used a data recovery tool for iPhone 4 from http://tinyurl.com/iPhone-4-Data-Recovery to help me retrieve deleted images from iPhone 4 without iTunes backup.
Now, I read the question, just hope to help more users to get out of problem!
Photos in iPhone is like data in computer, so you can try to get the photos back from iPhone memory while you don't make backup in iTunes. Some third party apps can help you. You should have a try. http://goo.gl/35M419
