    Lookig for LF supply retail stores in Paris and London

    Hello all,

    found a store with some lovely LF and 120 gear today in Paris around Blvd Beaumarchais. Didn't get to ask about 8x10 or 11x14 film and paper supplies as I'm guessing they had some important customers in at the time and I looked like a general gawker of sorts with no real investment to be made... I'll try again tomorrow and put on my 'serious photographer face and pants' see what happens

    But it got me thinking - I'm after film in 8x10 and 11x14 (all varieties considered) and also the french COT320 or Arches Platine used in Pt/Pd printing, are there any other retail stores in either of these cities that might stock it on the shelf ? (like I found for instance at some NYC stores last year)

    Any tips appreciated,
    Cheers,
    Nick

    Try Silverprint (an APUG sponsor) for film (30% off Ilfird film for 10+ rolls) & paper in London, and Teamwork in Foley Dtreet, London for equipment. Both are excellent shops/suppliers.

    yes -- prophot. Unlike most French photo-related stores, they work Monday-Friday and close the weekend. Watch out for their lunch hour, when they close. Some items they don't have on the shelves -- their BW chems, for instance. You have to ask what they have. But you should find their film all on display. I usually take the metro to Abbesses and walk over.

    50 more sheets of Foma200

    The Provia and Ektachrome were near expiry so I went with just the B+W... No Platine or COT320, but at least the shop guy knew what I was referring to.

    Silverprint appears to have Platine in stock, I'll find out on Friday - are they open weekends?
