As if Instagram couldn’t get any better, today they launched ‘Hyperlapse’, their new video app. So you know how you always wondered whether or not you had a tremor, with so many shaky videos, well now with this new app you’ll be able to shoot films like a real filmmaker, as seen in the video above.
According to Time magazine, ‘Hyperlapse’ uses image stabilizing algorithms to iron out the jolts + tremors that typically mar timelapse smartphone footage, creating what the company calls ‘a cinematic look, quality + feel—a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment.’ Users can set playback speeds at 1 to 12 times the speed of the real world, collapsing prolonged shots into a few speedy seconds.
Instagram wrote in its announcement of the new app, ‘From documenting your whole commute in seconds or the preparation of your dinner from start to finish to capturing an entire sunset as it unfolds, we’re thrilled about the creative possibilities Hyperlapse unlocks.’
Of course, the app is already available for iPhones at the iOS App Store but sadly, in the works for Androids.
