Instagram Releases Hyperlapse, a Time Lapse Video App

hyperlapse from instagram

Instagram released a stand alone time lapse video app today. The app has built in image stabilization, which reduces shakiness. Instagram blogged about hyperlapse:

Traditionally, time lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse from Instagram features built-in stabilization technology that lets you create moving, handheld time lapses that result in a cinematic look, quality and feel—a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment.

We designed Hyperlapse to be as simple as possible. You don’t need an account to create a hyperlapse. Instead, you open up straight to the camera. Tap once to begin recording and tap again to stop. Choose a playback speed that you like between 1x-12x and tap the green check mark to save it to your camera roll. You can share your video on Instagram easily from there.

Currently hyperlapse is only available for iOS. What do you think about this new app? Let me know on Facebook. I’m excited to use it while playing with my dog Rigby. Stay tuned for videos of him in 12x haha.
