When ever I use Camino I can't get the new Google Images site. Camino only loads the older site. I have cleared cookies and cache, restarted, logged out and back in but nothing seems to work. Why?

I'm pretty sure the "new" layout doesn't work very well in Gecko 1.9.x browsers. Try Firefox 3.6.x, but I bet you'll get basically the same results.

You *might* be able to get a useful site by spoofing your user-agent string as a newer Gecko version (like, say, Firefox 20), but I wouldn't hold out a lot of hope for that. Google is pretty good about not abusing the UA string for stupid stuff. Put another way, if Google Web developers say their site works best in a relatively recent browser and may not be functional in, e.g., Camino 2.x, they're probably right.
