MEVO has produced a film camera that can live stream to all the major social media platforms. Jeremy Webb got hold of one of the cameras and offered to share his findings with us.
The MEVO camera system arrives in a plush looking box and the packaging is all quality. This immediately gives the buyer confidence in the product and through using it I was not disappointed. In a world where seconds count and everything has to be done in an instant, MEVO will meet that demand for its users and live stream footage to multiple social media platforms. Getting your message out there has never been so easy. You link the camera to an App on your phone or tablet and when you open the App it powers up the camera, filming right away.
It films in HD with a superb quality 150º all-glass lens and Sony® 4K / 12MP CMOS sensor, If you want to record your footage to an SD card and playback later it captures this content in 4K.
The system is very versatile and allows overlaying of titles on the go, plus editing within the App. Sharing of recorded footage is easy with helpful hints to guide you. I filmed, edited and sent the footage via a connection on my phone all while in the middle of an old airfield. I also did the trendy live streaming of my antics.
There are options to join Vimeo and enhance your capabilities of the device. These involve monthly subscription packages.
One camera allows multiple shots with, Multi-View function enables easy live-switching. Use manual and auto-trackers to create up to nine custom camera angles. Select any shot with a simple tap.
The camera itself indicates what is happening with colours changing on the top of the unit. The LED light ring displays critical information and acts as a tally light. It glows red when you’re live and lights up on the left, right, or centre so you know who’s in the shot.
In a very short time, I was very impressed with this little camera system, that becomes Cameraman, Director, Editor and Producer. So much is on offer that you will be finding new possibilities for a long time, and MEVO aims to improve your experience with software updates over the internet.
For £450 it is a bargain, enabling you to do away with a lot of equipment and travel lightly. Buy this and you will not be disappointed, just remember to share the results with everyone LIVE.
