Exclamation [Q] Location of photos? NO SD-card inserted

Hey guys

Can you tell me where the photos taken by the camera are stored, if there is no SD-card is inserted?

Background: My little sister's S2 got damaged by water and the touchscreen is not working anymore.
I installed Clockworkmod, inserted a sd-card and did a backup of the phone. Afterwards I extracted the archive
on my computer BUT i couldn't find any photos form the camera.
She pretends that there have been a lot of photos in the gallery before this little accident ...

They should be located at /sdcard/DCIM resp. /storage/sdcard/DCIM (which is the same location), but how did you do the backup? A nandroid backup? Did you look at the correct partition?

The photos are stored on the internal USB storage in the DCIM folder
