Washington, D.C. – The Instagram development team has unveiled their new features on Instagram through a Livestream presentation initally presented by Facebook’s owner, Mark Zuckerberg. In keeping with new competitors like Twitter’s Vine app and Cinemagram; Instagram has add video support to their service. You can now record 15-second videos with filters, like regular photos, and even pick the cover thumbnail you want to use. The videos will not loop like on Vine nor automatically load like on Cinemagram, but integrate simply into your Instagram account — no new registration required.
UPDATE: New Stabilization service called “Cinema” for stabilization of videos on Instagram. It seems a lot better than the one on YouTube, but we will have to see.
UDATE ON STABILIZATION FEATURE: After installing the new update, we uploaded a video and tested out the Cinema stabilization option, which is automatically added to the video but can be turned off when selecting a filter. It “zooms in” to stabilize but it is not as dramatic as the YouTube version. Overall, it works pretty well.
