Dear Davide Del Vecchio,

 It's also possible to recover deleted photos from almost any flash card  in almost any device (camera, mobile, etc) - it's a way general purpose  file systems work. Requirement to delete information securely is  enforced in devices certified to e.g. process US military secretes. In  this case, device must follow DoD 5220-22-M recommendations and you can  expect secure erase. In general purpose operation systems and devices,  to delete information securely (wipe it) some additional  actions/utilities are usually required.
