If you're getting paid for a gig that is in any way unrepeatable, I'd say you need a backup camera without exception.
I just don't see how I could ever tell someone, "sorry, your event is important and all but my camera died so you can't have pictures of it."
Frankly, if I'm getting paid in ANY way, I have a backup camera - but it's easier to say, "sorry, we need to reschedule your portraits" than "sorry, we need to reschedule your baby shower."
If you can't swing two new rigs, a D3200 as a backup is better than no backup.
