    nah. They're really great on batteries these days, you can recharge back in your room each night if needed and if you HAVE To desperately get another battery, bestbuy isnt ever far away ;)

    I've haven't found that i have needed one yet but i don't shoot video. Depends how many photos/video you're going to take and how much playback you're going to do.

    is there a guide to how long the battery lasts?

    Most people say the first charge gives 250 ish but subsequent charges give 500-750 depending how much flash/video etc.

    400 is the official amount of shots - i would get a spare one if you can. You don't want to run out of battery.

    True...especially at the F&W Festival!!!

    And a spare will only run me about 40 dollars or so...the question is, if I charge it up and then, say, don't use it for three days...will it still hold the charge?

    These newer batteries are all Lithium Ion. They'll hold their charge for weeks if not months. I've got a spare for my Nikon that I charged a good six months ago and it still shows as 100%.
