Now you and your friends don't just have to take boring stills or 15-second clips of everything you eat; no, Instagram solved that first-world problem of not being able to take time-lapse videos of everything with your computer-phone by releasing the Hyperlapse app yesterday.
And actually, it's pretty cool.
The app allows users to record longer videos and to effectively fast forward through the lengthy clips. More importantly, it also uses an algorithm to stabilize images, giving often-shaky handheld footage a more professional look. Videos aren't of the quality you'd get from a steadycam and a DSLR, but if the Internet has proved anything, it's that people like things quick, dirty, and with a Valencia filter.
Plenty of IG power users have already gotten into the Hyperlapse game.
Like National Geographic photography fellow Dave Guttenfelder. Buffalo haven't moved this fast since Jim Kelly was taking snaps under the K-Gun.
Or this cool video from a boat circling the Sydney Opera House.
There are also plenty of amateurs taking videos while driving. Don't Insta and drive, kids.
Even the White House is using Hyperlapse. You can skitter around the Oval Office quicker than Monica Lewinsky after a knock on the door.
Hyperlapse is only available on iOS for now. But if you've got an iPhone and a cinematic mind, you can produce your own mini-masterpieces now. And for more videos, search #hyperlapse on Instagram.
Download the app on the iTunes Store, read more about it on the Instagram blog, or just watch a few examples in the video below.
