Leica M10 P ASC 100 Edition
The Leica M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” is a special homage to cinematographers. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the American Society of Cinematographers, the camera set is designed with director’s eye in mind. The series is limited to only 300 sets worldwide.
Leica Camera is excited to announce that the new special edition Leica M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” camera and lens set. The Leica M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” is a homage to cinematographers. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the American Society of Cinematographers, the camera set is designed with director’s eye in mind. The all-black camera design with gold anodized Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. lens hearkens back to the look of Oskar Barnack’s prototype camera, the Ur-Leica, which he initially used to test film emulsions for use in his cinema camera. Likewise, the M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” comes pre-loaded with two Cine Look features – “ASC Cine Classic” mode for a classic, analog 35mm motion-picture film look, and “ASC Contemporary” for current digital styles – both co-developed with Leica and ASC.
Pairing perfectly with the Cine Looks, the special edition set also comes with a Leica Visoflex EVF and Leica M-PL-Mount adapter to accommodate any PL-Mount cine lens and utilize the still picture camera as a director’s viewfinder, to frame shots through the very same lenses that will be used for filming. Aesthetics-wise, the camera body is finished in black chrome with blacked-out setting dials, a black-on-black ASC logo on the top plate and wrapped in the unique diamond pattern embossed leatherette akin to the Leica SL and Leica Q. The gold lens cap is adorned with the classic ASC seal.
The Leica M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” features two specially tailored cine look modes, implemented into the camera’s software. These looks can be activated in the JPEG settings menu and will be displayed in live view and playback as well as captured in the JPEG file itself. To make the M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” the perfect tool for professional cinematographers, it will enable users to select from different frame lines used in cinematography. Once activated in the capture assistants menu, the corresponding frame line will be displayed as a bright-line frame in live view as well as in playback mode to assess the framing of a shot before shooting begins. Note: the image will be captured in 3:2 as usual.
The Leica M10-P “ASC 100 Edition” will be limited to 300 sets worldwide.

Exposure Metering: Exposure metering through the lens (TTL), with working aperture
Metering Method: For metering the light reflected by light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: Strong center-weighted; for metering on the sensor: Spot, center-weighted, multi-field metering
Metering Range: At room temperature and normal humidity for ISO 100, at aperture 1.0 EV-1 to EV20 at aperture 32. Flashing of the left triangular LED in the viewfinder indicates values below the metering range
Sensitivity Range: ISO 100 to ISO 50000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments from ISO 200, choice of automatic control or manual setting
Exposure Modes: Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture pre-selection – aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting
Flash Exposure Control
Flash Unit Attachment: Via accessory shoe with central and control contacts
Synchronization: Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd Shutter curtain
Flash Sync Time: 1/180s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed: Automatic changeover to TTL linear flash mode with HSS compatible Leica system flash units
Flash Exposure Metering: Using center-weighted TTL pre-flash metering with Leica flash units (SF40, SF64, SF26, SF60), or flash units compatible with the system with SCA3502 M5 adapter
Flash Measurement Cell: 2 silicon photo diodes with collection lens on the camera base
Flash Exposure Compensation: ±3EV in1⁄3 EV increments
Displays in Flash Mode (in viewfinder only): Using flash symbol LED
Construction Principle: Large, bright line frame viewfinder with automatic parallax compensation
Eyepiece: Calibrated to -0.5 diopter; corrective lenses from -3 to +3 diopter available
Image Field Limiter: By activating two bright lines each: For 35 and 135mm, for 28 and 90mm, or for 50 and 75mm; automatic switching when lens is attached
Parallax Compensation: The horizontal and vertical difference between the viewfinder and the lens is automatically compensated according to the relevant distance setting, i.e. the viewfinder bright-line automatically aligns with the subject detail recorded by the lens.
Matching Viewfinder & Actual Image: At a range setting of 2m, the bright-line frame size corresponds exactly to the sensor size of approx. 23.9 x 35.8mm; at infinity setting, depending on the focal length, approx. 7.3% (28mm) to 18% (135mm) more is recorded by the sensor than indicated by the corresponding bright line frame and slightly less for shorter distance settings than 2m
