Stores in Paris, France?

Any stores in Paris, France where I could get some video equipment/electronics? So far I've been told to check out:
  • Darty
  • BHV - Bazar de l'Hotel de Ville
Looking for extra batteries for the Canon XH-A1, MiniDV tapes, WD-72 wide angle converter, maybe an onboard light, and an extra Bogen tripod plate adapter. If they also sell Gitzo tripods for photography that would be great. I've been out in the wild for awhile, and Paris will be the first civilized place I will land.

The Stores that you've listed have a very small departement for the photography/video products and accessoiries (espacially for the more 'Pro' video items).

Forget the BHV store, and add on your list the FNAC big stores.

But I advice you to look for some specialiazed stores (to be sure to find your items available in stock), like:
- Cirque Photo Video : 9 bis boulevard des Filles du Calvaire, in the 3rd 'arrondissement' (district) of Paris,
- Visual Impact France : 72 Boulevard de Reuilly, in the 12th 'arrondissement' of Paris.

Hi Michael,
Yep I would second those mentioned by Bruno... you also have :

1) Objectif Bastille - 11 rue Jules César, 75012 Paris
2) LOCA-IMAGES 173, rue du faubourg poissonnière 75009 Paris

I think with this list you should find your bonheur.
