Logitech’s Mevo Core: Worth the Investment?

Mevo Core Review

Logitech has updated their Mevo line with some impressive professional options. Those options come with a price tag, though. The new Mevo Core is a small, cube-shaped camera that is trying to corner its way into the crowded streaming market.

Simple Design Hides Features

The unassuming cubic design hides its true potential. But don’t let its simplicity fool you; this little powerhouse is packing some serious power. With a Micro Four Thirds sensor, interchangeable lens support, and the ability to capture 4K video locally while streaming at 1080p, the Mevo Core is punching well above its weight class.

But here’s where things get really interesting: the Mevo Multicam app. This is where Logitech’s vision truly shines. The app transforms your smartphone or tablet into a mini production studio, allowing you to seamlessly switch between multiple Mevo Core cameras, add picture-in-picture effects, and even incorporate smartphone cameras into your setup. The app really is the “killer app:” of this line.

The real magic trick? The app’s ability to turn a single Mevo Core into multiple virtual cameras. By leveraging the 4K sensor, you can crop and pan within the frame, creating the illusion of multiple camera angles from a single static shot. It’s a feature that feels like it’s been plucked from the future, offering a level of flexibility that solo streamers have only dreamed of until now.

The app does this by connecting the cameras and app to a wireless network. Don’t have one? No problem. The cameras themselves can become a wireless hotspot that all the cameras, and app, connect to. You don’t really have to have access to a network for the system to work.

Worth the Investment

Innovation comes at a price;  $1,000 to be exact, and that’s before you factor in lenses. It’s a significant investment, especially when compared to more traditional streaming setups. But for those who are serious about upping their streaming game, the Mevo Core offers a unique blend of professional-grade features and user-friendly design that’s hard to match.

That lens part may seem like a negative. For those who are looking to increase the quality of their streams, it’s a bonus. You aren’t married to the built-in lens that just comes with whatever camera you buy. You get to choose. That’s the magic of Mevo Core. You can customize the quality of your shoot and stream.

Low-light performance could be better, and the image quality, while good, won’t outshine dedicated mirrorless cameras in the same price range. But that’s not really the idea. The Mevo Core isn’t trying to be the best camera — it’s trying to be the best streaming system. And in that regard, it’s a compelling system that could increase the quality for creators looking to level up their live productions.

Get your stream on

The Mevo Core is not without its flaws, but it represents a step forward in streaming technology. For those willing to invest, it offers a glimpse into the future of live content creation. 4 out of 5 stars.
