If you’re not sure if your device will work with the Mevo Camera App, check our list of supported devices here.

Mevo has three ways of connecting to the Internet - via a local WiFi network, over a 4G LTE cellular data connection, or via Ethernet and an existing wired network. To learn about each option, read our article on The Different Ways Mevo Connects to the Internet. 

3. Basic Gestures and Using Camera Assistant

Once you’re connected and in the camera view, there are three main gestures to control what the camera sees and add dynamic edits to your live stream. 

Tapping on a part of the image cuts to a zoomed-in view.

Swiping around the image will move that view throughout the senes

Pinching in and out controls a zoom

You can also create a collection of Static Shots, allowing you to cut to an array of saved scenes. Read more about how to set a Static Shots here.
