    Great Quality

    I've been using my Mevo for over a month now and it works fine, for the most part. The sound works best in a big room or open area. In a small space, it makes you sound like you're in a fish bowl or in a box. Clarity is outstanding and the app is fairly easy to use. If you're a simple streamer like I am, using this can be cumbersome. You need to use your phone w/ the app to control the camera and see one comment at a time on fb live. Going live on your phone is easier. But, the picture quality makes up for that. Wide angle lens captures a lot more than your iphone does. Even in landscape mode. Battery life is not the best. I've done 1 straight hour before requiring to plug in. Don't use a USB charger to keep this on. It needs more power. So I carry the adapter with me at all times. So far, its been fun to use. Takes some getting used to. The feature I love the most is its size. Very compact. So putting it on a tripod in the middle of the room to stream an event, this doesn't block the view of people sitting behind it.

    This product has a lot of great virtues. Sadly connecting to my Android on the Verizon Wireless Network was not one of them. The design is great, the idea is wonderful, having a Livestream feed for the online video feed, while it sounds like it works fine in a situation where you have a high-quality uninterrupted wifi feed or a wired connection, with the additional Boost, which I did not purchase. In their online Facebook Group, there are a number of concerns about collectability, many feel this is not fully tested prior to release in the market place. I would have kept it if my Sony Action Cam did not do pretty much the same thing, and used it as a video camera. The quality of the images was good, I just wished it did what I had hoped it would do, stream live to Social Media through my cellular data plan.

    Makes live video easy and fun

    Full disclosure, I bought this camera from Mevo directly since I wanted the accessories as well (which Best Buy does not sell). But as an avid Best Buy shopper thought I would share my experience. Overall its a cool product and concept. Great design and the cam is much smaller than I expected. Its easy to setup and go live from nearly anywhere, which I wanted for my business. The editing features in the app are slick and that really separates the product from anything else out there. Software can be a little clunky at times, but they seem to be committed to improvements through updates. One thing to note -- in order to make the best use of this product and avoid disappointments, make sure you use some of their tutorials available on the Mevo youtube channel. Lots of good tips on there to help improve your audio and video results using this camera. Cool product.

    Really great live streaming camera

    This is my second time purchasing the Mevo. The first, I got it on pre-order when they first released it. I then sold those away to a friend. But I’ve needed to stream a couple church related events recently, so I picked this one up. In the time that’s past, Mevo have really revolutionized their software features! This thing is really now a top notch product with flexibility for pretty much all my needs. For the price you pay, I don’t think you can find another camera that does even 1/3 of what this can!

    Not bad but not the best!

    So many variables. Works good if you have great internet speed. It gives you more of a fish-eye look in small spaces. If you're doing a show, need someone else to control the shots because if you're speaking on camera, you'll look crazy constantly looking down. You can only control the shots so many feet away from the Mevo. It doesn't work well on a public network. With the new updated version, it's hard to set the shots you want. Some of the shots automatically set.

    I am a church pastor and I was hoping to use this camera as a streaming tool for Facebook. Sadly, it was so glitchy that it couldn't stream the entire gathering. The software was a bit confusing, and I thought the streaming quality was poor. I'll probably give this Camera another shot once the second generation comes out. In theory it's a rad idea, in practice it failed to meet my expectations.

    Makes me look like a live video pro

    I like this camera because I can quickly connect to Facebook live, save the live video video file to the micro SD card and upload to YouTube and other platforms after I'm done, it makes me look like a pro with the auto editing features, and I love the fact that I can use my phone as a microphone for the camera from a distance when I am speaking.

    I researched a variety of solutions for my live streaming needs. Ranging from mobile devices, comparative cameras, and then the mevo. The YouTube tutorials and user experience videos of lessons learned were very valuable in terms of knowing what to expect and how to set up the optimal audio/visual experience. I plan on purchasing more of these for a multi-angle experience. HIGHLY recommend.

    This is a great start to this type of tech. Works well but had some audio issues. I think when the base adapter comes out it'll move the rating if this product up. I returned mine as I just don't see using it on Facebook that much. Would be nice if it could stream to YouTube

    I have owned and returned to manufacturer multiple units. Finally the firmware is stable and reliable. Maybe the product was rushed too market. I can't say enough about this device and even better things about Mevo/Livestream support. I do wish they made a cover for when unit is not in use though on tripod or stand.

    It's amazing how something so small can perform like a pro. It's fun being the "director" and creating live videos with different visual transitions. I use my Shure MV88 microphone connected to my iPhone, and the sound is excellent. My only complaint is, I wish there were a lens cover protector.

    The 4K sensor in this camera takes excellent video. The companion app's ability to control this device and stream to different services seems to work pretty well. I wanted to be able to use the camera in addition to others cameras though, and for that you have to buy their $800 studio software.

    The only issue you might have with this product is that you need to have hi speed internet to live stream well. Other than that this is a great product. Upload speed needs to be at least 3 mbs to work well.

    Picked this little feature packed camera for FB live. Hands down beats any other option for doing live events on FB. I hate to write a glowing review because I don't want everyone to know my secret for doing live events on FB live but this is the best option for needing a well produced show.

    This is a great little video camera for smaller churches who want to live stream their services, Just set it up close to the stage, control it with an iPad, and you have a nice video production system at a very reasonable price.

    Love this camera.! I don't use it as a live event feed. I use it for B roll footage of public speakers, so that I can cut in views from different angles. I keep mine plugged in during filming. If you don't plan to do that you may need the add on battery.

    The picture is fine. However, the camera won’t stay connected to WiFi or the lte. It interrupts our live feed all the time and we don’t know until after the event/church service

    This is a great camera for live broadcasts. It really allows for a ton of versatility. Quality is good for streaming purposes only. Not an alternative to a DSLR, GoPro or even an iPhone when it comes to broadcast quality.

    Is a great camera and you can do live streaming to another new level. The only Cons is that you have to have great lightning so your video looks like the Mevo samples they have and a great connection.
