Photo Lesson Overview on

CGIPix is an observation that Nikon, Canon and the rest no longer make cameras,
they make computers that you can attach a lens to.
Camera Bags

Don't buy a camera bag that will fit all of the equipment you currently have, buy one that will allow you to grow a bit.

There are plenty of choices as to how you can carry your camera:

Hard Cases

Pelican is the one brand that stands out, they make incredible cases. Some of them have wheels, and are all are watertight.

Back Packs

The camera backpacks are versatile for long hikes.

Waist Packs

For speed and ease, nothing beats a waist pack to have instant access to equipment.


A good camera vest will help distribute the weight, and will let you carry lenses and accessories within easy reach.

Camera Bags

The standard, over the shoulder camera bag.

My Camera Bags

I've always liked Tamrac bags. They are well built, and they make some of the biggest bags around. My current setup is a 614 Pro, their biggest bag, with the dual shoulder straps, so it carries like a backpack or shoulder bag.

Think Tank

Here are some samples from the Photo Galleries:

Here are the guidelines for using any pictures from this site:

If the image is stated as being a COPYRIGHTED IMAGE, then it cannot be used. A link MUST be placed from the page that the picture is used, either to Home Page, Thumbnail Page or to the photo's Gallery Page.
The link can be a text link at the bottom of the page, or the picture can be a link.
There is a limit of 10 (Ten) photos that may be used from this website on another single website. After 10 (Ten) photos, permission must be obtained to use additional photos.
Keep the name of the picture as it was originally named, without changing it.
The images on this site are all sized at 400 x 600, that is the size limit for using them on any other website.
The Desktop Backgrounds are for personal use only, and are not meant to be put on a website, unless they are resized at 400 x 600.
You can use the images for commercial, personal, professional or any type of website.
If it's a commercial website, remember that you don't have a model release, so if it's a picture with someone in it, and they are prominently featured, you can't use it without a model release. When it's a picture of scenery or anything where the people are not identifiable, then you can use it freely.
The "MODELS" pictures are all PREMIUM images. They cannot be used without permission.
It's not a requirement, but send me an e-mail if you use a photo.
