Welcome to the Digital Camera Special Interest Group (SIG). Originally a SIG of the Coastal Area Users Group (CAUG), we've spun off into our own independent group with the termination of CAUG. This site is meant to be a resource site for the photographically interested members, but anyone is welcome to browse and take advantage of information posted on these pages. CAUG went on hiatus in 2010, but DigiCam SIG continues to run strong and meet each month since 2002, thanks to our world class members!

Here you'll find lessons we've learned and assignments we've carried out to implement those lessons. Feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions.

Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm

We're taking a hiatus for the December holidays, so shoot lots of shots of whatever you like and we'll get back together in January! The traditional HOLIDAYS assignment is our mainstay for this time of year, but as usual, it's a free shoot, too, for whatever you want to feature. From all of us to all of you, may your holidays be safe, happy, warm and fulfilling! See you in January!

If you use any special sets or setups for your assignment, please show us what you did and be prepared to talk about how you did it. Be creative and push the envelope as far as you dare. Above all, have fun!

Have a safe holiday period, whatever and however you celebrate!
