    Where to buy film in Paris?

    I could use some help from folks who know where to buy film in Paris. Specific directions and/or names of stores would help cut down time wasted buying ammunition and more time shooting!

    Thank you.

    It's been a while since I've been in Paris, but I always shopped at Prophot for film whenever I was in the city. Be warned though -- film in France is expensive, so it's better if you can bring your own. In French "argentique" refers to film (silver-based) photography, both colour and black and white, where as "numerique" is digital (not sure what your French skills are like, just thought I'd mention it).

    Prophot is a bit expensive.

    Photo stock (Bd Serurier, near La Vilette) is less expensive. www.photostock.fr (metro Porte de Pantin and 5 miutes walk)

    I'm also very happy with Sels d'argent. www.selsdargent.com and it is closer to the centre (metro Republique or Jacques Bonsergent; and 5 minutes walk)

    I use Photostock regularly and have had good service and reasonable prices, (for Europe).

    Actually you're right -- I totally forgot about Photo stock and Sels d'argent -- I bought from both those places as well. It's amazing how quickly the memory goes!
