Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to get the deleted files that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available.
If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be Data Recovery for Mac

You have chance to get back some or all of those lost videos if you take care.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos with the hard disk (on your camcorder) that you want to recover videos from. Take the disk out of your cam and put it in a safe place. Because if you take any more videos or save any data to your hard disk, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of video recovery.

Then Connect the disk to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your videos with Wondershare Recovery Software (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link:

Video Photo Recovery (if you are running Windows OS)
Mac Photo Video Recovery (if you are running Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your camcoder(hard drive disk) until you can recover your videos safely!

You can recovery your video files from any format with the help of data recovery software. I would suggest try the Windows recovery software by Stellar. You can download free demo version of the software, it shows the preview of retrieved files.

    There are some free softwares available u can search them on google but I do not believe in free software as it will end up messing my computer with virus and spywares and whether it recovers your data intact or not is not guaranteed there are chances that u end up loosing your precious data. So I look for cheap and good software. For recovery software, I bought one before called Kernel for FAT and NTFS, good thing is that it's one time payment and then it allows me to use forever. Take a look if you do not mind paying to get back your data, U can also download d trial version fromhttp://www.recoverdeletedfiles.org/
    Using trial version u can preview d data recovered but to save it u hav to purchase the software

How to retrieve my deleted videos/pictures


I had a case when I accidentally mirrored my drive and overwritten ALL my files. I tried to download a software "RecoverMyFiles v3.9" and it worked perfectly for me! In your case, you can still recover all of those deleted files of yours as long as they're still intact ( meaning to say the drive isn't formatted ). All the deleted files could be found on a hidden folder called RECYCLER.

The drawback when you recovered your files, you have to open each of the files you recovered 'cause it won't provide you all the file names before you recently named your files.
