Instagram launches Hyperlapse app for capturing high-quality time lapse videos


Popular photo-sharing site Instagram has launched a new app that will let users capture high-quality time lapse videos even while in motion with their smartphones

The Hyperlapse app lets you create image-stabilised timelapse video clips, with users able to choose the speed of their timelapse (1x to 12x).

Traditionally, time lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. But with Hyperlapse from Instagram that has features built-in stabilization technology 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” instagram said in blog post 

Interestingly, You don’t need an Instagram account to create Hyperlapse clips with the app either, instagram stated.

”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. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create.”, the company said
