Easily add photo or video to email message in iOS Mail iOS devices
You can add a photo or a video to an email message in iOS Mail without gong to the Photos app, though it's not very obvious how to do this.

While composing your email:

1. Tap on your email and hold until the "Select, Select All, Paste" menu displays.
2. Tap the arrow button at the right of this menu.
3. Tap Insert Photo or Video.
4. Select the photo or video you want to embed.

Easily add photo or video to email message in iOS Mail

Doesn't work with iOS 5.1.1 on an iPhone 4. The arrow gets you to quote level, no video or picture in that menu. On iPad2 with iOS 6.0.1 there isn't a need for the right arrow, the video and picture are in the menu there.

Looks like this is an 'iOS 6 only' function, doesn't work on my iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1.1

Yes, iOS 6+ only. I recall that being listed in the MacWorld or ML review of iOS 6. I actually remembered to use it a few weeks ago at DisneyWorld. It's much easier than starting with a photo.
