Where form meets function

Instagram has officially launched Hyperlapse, a brand new app that allows you to capture high-quality, time-lapse videos even while in motion. Traditionally, time-lapse videos require holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse 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.

Hyperlapse was designed to be as simple as possible. You don’t even 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.
