I am wondering how many batteries do you need for a camera. I have a EM10 and a PL5 which both use the same battery. I ordered two spare batteries (one for each camera) but in a fluke the company doubled my order and is sending me 4 batteries. I am trying to decide whether to go ahead and pay for the extra two, so that I would have two spares for each camera or to return the second set.

Weddings and other events are high-volume gigs. I'll typically shoot 400-600 photos in a moderately intense 3-hour job, using two batteries and still having one in reserve.

How much do you shoot in an active day?
