If you’re looking for the best webcam for streaming, the best webcam for conference rooms, and the best webcam for YouTube, then you will find a friend in the Mevo Plus. Its 150-degree field of view makes it one of the best webcams for conference room, and if are looking to use it solely for conference calls, you should take note of the price beforehand.
Why We Like It – Mevo Plus
The Mevo Plus is a gamer’s or vlogger’s dream when it comes to webcams. For more options, you can check out our list of the top webcams for vlogging. It can record in 4K for beautiful, high-resolution images and videos and has a variety of viewing modes for the advanced streamer looking to have some fun. Finally, it can run on its battery pack or a micro USB Cable, so you won’t have to worry about the battery dying at an inopportune moment.

Just like the A6600 camera, the Mevo Plus has the capability to record in 4K detail with a 150-degree field of view. If you’d like a camera with similar recording capabilities, have a look at our Lumix G85 review. For game and conference streaming, this field of view is like heaven, but you can consider the Logitech C922X Pro Stream Webcam if you don’t need a view that big, or even the Mevo Start. But notice how I said record in 4K. If you’re broadcasting live streaming, you’ll be forced into 1080P unless you invest in a removable MicroSD Card. Although, if you’re fine with 1080p, then you’ll want to look at the camera in our Canon HF R700 review. The Ausdom webcam can also record and stream in 1080p. Additionally, if you are a streamer, you may want to check out the top webcams for Twitch.
Ease of Use
Once everything is set up, you can jump onto the Mevo App on your mobile device or computer, connect to the camera using Wi-Fi, and press the big red record button to record. Operation is easier than using the Nikon D850 camera. Once in the app, you can also control options such as black and white, sepia, and vivid or viewing modes like a stage, backlit, and outdoors if you really want to have some fun with it. If you’d rather have control of the camera and lighting, you’ll want to look at using the XINBAOHONG Rechargeable Portable Clip-on Selfie Fill Light with your mobile phone.
Built as a ‘take it and go’ type of device, the original Mevo Plus can run via the battery pack or the included micro USB cable. This makes it easy for YouTube streamers to stream from wherever they are (especially vloggers) or to make sure your battery doesn’t die during an important conference call. You can even use Mevo or Boost power adapters without the risk of safety concerns.

The Mevo Plus is constructed with an 802.11ac Wi-Fi chip with 2×2 MIMO antennas for faster, more stable Wi-Fi performance and an increased range. And at 2.5 inches tall, the webcam is small enough to go anywhere without being seen. So if you do need to set it up for a conference broadcast, it won’t be distracting to the people there. But if you don’t need that much power and just need a webcam for one-person broadcasting, check out the Razer Kiyo Webcam.
There are still plenty of useful features to talk about. With the app, your phone becomes a personal editing suite thanks to the Live Editing tools. The Mevo Plus is a fantastic tool for all your live-streaming needs. But keep in mind that it does come at a price. Truthfully, the webcam was designed for people already streaming and looking to up their game and not for newcomers wanting to break in.
Mevo Plus Wrap Up
Despite its promise of 4K video, the Mevo Plus can only record in that resolution. Without MicroSD Card support, it cannot live stream in 4K. Still, its live editing software, stable Wi-Fi, and easy-to-use app make it the perfect upgrade piece for established streamers or those looking for a good conference webcam on the company’s dime!
