You might be wondering what a ‘time-lapse’ is. It’s a photography method where your photos’ frequency is captured at a much lower time than the time needed to have your footage recorded. So when you’re taking a video of places like riding a plane or walking in a busy street, the time-lapse version would make it seem to move at a hyper-fast speed. Thus, Hyperlapse was made.
Using only the iPhone’s built-in sensors, Instagram’s Hyperlapse makes use of the movement data coming off these gyroscopes. Mimicking the effect of using expensive motion stabilization software used in film studios. But with Hyperlapse, it only uses a fraction of the processor power to have it done.
You don’t have to own an Instagram account to get this app. You can just download it from the App Store. The only thing you can change about your videos is the speed of playback. Use the slider to change speeds from 1X to 12 X.
With its unique concept and apparently user-friendly applications, Instagram’s Hyperlapse may be one of the pioneers for this technology. For the GoPro and Google Glass users, mobile videography has just taken a giant leap for the next best thing!
