If you are after cameras a good street for second hand stuff is Boulevard
Beaumarchais - take the metro to Bastille and just walk up the street.

Prophot is the place for film and supplies website is -
nearest metro is Anvers if I recall.

There are always plenty of photo expos in Paris but you may want to visit
MEP near Metro St Paul - its on rue de Fourcy. When you are in town get a
copy of Pariscope which lists all the expos. Hotel Sully, very close to the
MEP also has regular photo expos you will find it on rue st antoine.

Have fun
