Camera is NiMh intended, as most digital cameras today are. Mind you,
I expect many are going lithium these days.

Thanks for the link.
Now to go rummaging for a 10W, 10 ohm resistor ...
OH NO - NOT RESISTOR COLOUR CODES ... it's been ... decades.
BBROYGBVGW ... hmmm, the mnemonic I learned isn't ... politically
correct these days.
