Just because the camera sometimes uses 5V 2A max or some times 100 ma.
You cannot pick a single resistor to reduce the voltage from the 7.4V supply..
At 2A the resistor needs to be 1.2 ohms,
at 100ma the resistor needs to be 24 ohms.
you need a 5V regulator like an 7405 or an LM317.

NO, unless you put a resistor in series and watch the temp continuously.

That makes so much sense. I went and ordered the 7405 from digi key. And will use it and soon as it comes in.
Thank you so much for your help. :)))
