Frequently asked questions

Do you ship ASC Store products internationally?

Yes, we offer competitive prices on international shipping.

What are the differences between the print and digital editions of American Cinematographer?

The content is identical. All print subscriptions include free access to the digital edition. If you live outside the United States, the digital edition will reach you faster and cost less (because you won’t have to pay international postage); a link for downloading the issue is e-mailed to you during the first week of the month.

Can I sample the digital edition of American Cinematographer to see if I like it?

If you subscribe to the print edition you already have free access to the digital edition — you just need to activate your online account. To do that you will need your Subscriber ID number, which is printed on the mailing label attached to the plastic wrap on your magazine. If you cannot locate this number, please contact us for assistance at, or call toll-free in U.S. at (800) 448-0145 or at (323) 969-4333.
