Well, I have a Canon photocamera, wich needs batteries of the CR2 type. But, I accidently bought two different batteries, the same type (CR2) but different brands (Samsung and Varta). Should I use them both at the same time? They are pretty expensive and last for a couple of years, so I don't want to waste one of them by not using it....

The two batteries should be the same voltage and should work without a problem. But I guarantee if you asked any of those companies what to do they will tell you to use the same brand at the same time.

Are these rechargeable batteries? If so then you should use the same brand batteries due to possible manufacturing differences and the way the charger charges them. If they are both Alkaline or non rechargeable Lithium Ion then it shouldn't be a problem to use them together.
