    I originally posted this question under "film making" section of forum and gotten no response, so try it again here.

    Will 2 fully charged OEM batteries have enough juice to last for 2-hours of video shooting with LV on the entire way? I wasn't able to find an AC adapter for the OM-D.

    Thanks in advance or any feedback.

    I have achieved that with Olympus batteries -second battery in HDL-6 grip.
    Don't forget you can only get 29 min continuous recording without having to restart regardless of card size and battery strength and video format/size. So two hours will have 4 or 5 separate files.
    Also if camera internals get too hot during recording it will stop. That has not happened to me

    That's why you should ask in a forum...the power supply for the OM-D is the Olympus AC-3, but it requires you to have the HLD-6 grip attached in order to be able to plug it in:
