Instagram has just announced a new dramatic camera feature. Its purpose is to allow users to create even more videos of themselves or their friends and surroundings with a new touch of creativity.
This is Superzoom, and it needs one tap to activate a stuttered zoom that moves perfectly in sync with a dramatic music. So, whenever users feel like they need to highlight something in their video content, they now have the perfect tool to make it happen.
Instragram’s New Superzoom Adds a Fun Effect to Any Video
Instagram takes its tap of video content extremely seriously. Users are the main creators of such materials. The more incentives they got at their disposal, the more inspired they feel to immortalize bits of their lives.
Instagram users so far can tap into a large selection of camera effects, including Boomerang GIFs, Layout collages, and Hyperlapse time-lapse. The new addition offers a dramatic edge to this collection.
Superzoom makes it easy for people to create eye-catching videos. All they need to do is to choose either the front or the rear camera of their smartphones and align the targeting reticle with the person or object they want to focalize their content on.
Afterwards, the feature will take care of the rest. The camera will start zooming in its target for three times. At the same time, there will be a pretentious orchestral tune that beautifully synchronizes with the three-zoom shot.
The basic feature will create a footage of three seconds. However, there is a longer version as well that extends the material to 15 seconds. During this time, the camera will zoom in on the subject of choice while the final zoom takes place in slow motion.
The New Move Offers Instagram New Incentive to Attract More Users over SnapChat
The dramatic camera feature is perfect for users who like to create funny videos by portraying their subject in an excessively theatrical manner. Instagram made sure each content piece is perfect by accompanying the effect with stabilization technology. Users can post the results on Story, Instagram Direct, or save them locally for future uses.
The new feat intensifies the competition Instagram carries against SnapChat. Both social media platforms lure in new users with promises of creative ways to make their videos special.
