Can't help as regards French rates but in the UK a good guide to rates can be found on BECTU union site. As usual all DoP rates are open to negotiation, but for me it helps to have a Union rate which has been, as I understand, agreed with PACT (A Producers Alliance), which you can quote when someone is trying to undercut.

Lower than anywhere else, BTW. In the highest cost of living town.

Music videos never pay APA rate - they pay at best £1000 for 16hrs (eight to midnight is standard), often closer to £500-900. Many commercials (disguised as "web content") have started doing the same. London is turning in to a race to the bottom. Add on top of this a fierce competition and far too many DP's and I would stay well clear if you can, unless you're a producer ;)
