Instagram Hyperlapse App Review & Video Sample
Today, Instagram took us by surprise introducing it's brand new "Hyperlapse" video app. Unlike previous updates to the Instagram app, Hyperlapse is a stand alone app in itself that has the ability to share smooth and cinematic quality video right from your phone! So now that the app is live on the iOS app store (Android is coming soon), I had the opportunity to spend some time with "Hyperlapse" and give it a try. The results are incredible. Just have a look at the video I shot below with the app.
In an generation where smartphone cameras are limited with a built-in image stabilization system, Hyperlapse tries something new and utilizes the built-in gyroscopes in your iPhone to produce a smooth looking video. In my experience, I have noticed that this makes a huge difference in the quality of your video. Not only does it look more professional but it looks like it was shot on a $10,000 camera and not a smartphone. Hyperlapse is truly a game-changer for mobile video users and opens the door up to even more limitless possibilities. As a video producer, I know I will be addicted to this app and using it quite often! The only minor problem I see is that it will be difficult to mount your smartphone for epic shots. This would definitely be an incredible feature on, say, a Go Pro. None-the-less, Hyperlapse gets my stamp of approval and I highly recommend you check it out if you have an iOS device.
