Introducing Hyperlapse from Instagram

Since launching nearly four years ago, it has always been a priority to bring the Instagram community simple yet powerful tools that let people capture moments and express their creativity. Today, we’re excited to announce Hyperlapse from Instagram, a new app to capture high-quality time lapse videos even while in motion.

Traditionally, time lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse from Instagram 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.

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. You can share your video on Instagram easily from there.

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.

To learn more about what stabilization looks like in Hyperlapse, check out this video.

Hyperlapse from Instagram is available today for iOS devices in Apple’s App Store. It is currently only available for iOS.

May the Fourth Be with You: Celebrating Star Wars on May 4

For more photos and videos from Star Wars Day celebrations, follow the Star Wars official account (@starwars) and browse the #maythe4thbewithyou and #starwarsday hashtags.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… no one celebrated droids, Wookies or Ewoks on May fourth.

May 4, better known as Star Wars Day, unites fans from across the galaxy in celebration of the popular series and the culture it created. While each of the six live-action films were released in May, the origin of the date actually has a different connection to the series. If you say it out loud, “May the fourth,” you will hear that it nearly echoes the beginning of one of the most beloved Jedi phrases: “May the force be with you.”

Over the past few years, Star Wars fans have given life to the holiday, expressing excitement and dedication to the saga through social media. From watch parties, to trivia and costume contests, to celebrations held in Disney Parks, the force is strong with this annual tradition.
