Logitech expands its Mevo range of live streaming cameras for creators. The company’s new Mevo Core shoots in 4K, which means that unlike the 1080p Mevo Start we reviewed two years ago, cropping and digital zoom won’t result in excessively grainy video. The trade-off, however, is the price, as the new model will cost you three times as much for a triple-camera setup.

Mevo Core continues the range’s trajectory for wireless multi-camera live streaming directly to platforms such as YouTube, Twitch and Facebook. (Of course, you can also record content to upload later.) The $999 package ships as a body only, though Logitech says it will sell lens kits through Amazon and B&H Photo Video. Either way, you’ll need at least one Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens to get started, and the company says any powered or manual MFT lens will work on day one.

The camera has a large 4/3 CMOS sensor that Logitech says reduces noise and improves low-light performance and depth of field compared to the 1080p model. Core shoots in 4K at 30 fps for recording content to upload later; if you’re streaming live, you can use 1080p at 30fps instead. This model supports WiFi 6E, which can help with network latency and stability if your router also supports it.

The camera body is significantly larger than that of the Mevo Start. At 3.5 x 3.5 x 3.25 inches, it has a similar depth and height, but is about twice as wide. With the battery installed (and no lenses mounted), it weighs 1.5 lbs.

Logitech says the audio has also been improved. It has a built-in array of three noise-canceling microphones. You can also connect an external microphone (or other audio source), which we found important in the Mevo Start. We’ll have to wait and see if the Core’s built-in mics fare much better.

The Mevo Core’s battery life is rated at six hours. If you need more time, you can plug an external power source into its USB-C port. It also includes an HDMI port, 3.5mm (for analog audio) and a microSD card slot. Logitech says it can double as an (incredibly expensive) wired or wireless HD webcam.

Like previous models, the Mevo Core works with Logitech’s Mevo app (where you can adjust things like focus, zoom, and aperture) and the Multicam app to set up multi-view recording or streaming.

The Logitech Mevo Core is available for $999 for a single camera (body only) starting today. Available from Logitech, Amazon and B&H Photo Video.
