I got 2 rechargeable CR123A batteries from Amazon and charged them. Put them on and they worked fine until I popped up the flash. The camera died. I then took the batteries out and put them back in again. The camera went back to life, I repeated the flash pop up and the camera died again. I then decided to buy normal batteries and the problem does not occur anymore. Anyone experienced the same? And Could I have damaged my camera? Everything is working great, but any experts could weight in? Thanks in advance.
