Record to a microSD Card

Included with the Mevo is a Sandisk 16 GB microSD card (although we do have a list of other recommended cards) to record your events to.

First, insert the micro SD card into the slot on the back of the Mevo camera with the metal strips are facing up. Push the card all the way in; you should feel a soft click indicating it's securely inside the slot.

When your Mevo is on and connected to the Mevo app, you can start recording.

As a best practice, you may want to format your SD card first.

Tap the red button icon in the lower left corner of the interface.

A few options will appear; tap 'Record.'

The below screen will appear, giving you the option to name your recording.

The recording quality is set to HD by default. Tap the HD icon to reveal the following options

  • HD (720p)
  • Full HD (1080p)
  • 4K (2160p)

Recording in Full HD and 4K is only available on the Mevo iOS app version 1.5 Beta.  Learn how to download the beta.

Please note that this is a Beta and is not recommended for use in production environments.

If you choose 4K, you can only record your wide shot. Live editing features are disabled.

Take note of the write speed class of your microSD card when choosing your recording quality.

- 4K recording requires the card to be UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) or higher.

- Recording in 1080p requires UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) or higher.

Tap the red Record button to start recording.

Your recording has started.

To finish recording, tap the red circle icon in the bottom left corner of the Mevo app. Then drag the circle to the right.

The Mevo's LED ring will spin red for a brief moment, and then stop. This indicates that your recording has been stopped.
