Instagram Superzoom to Let Users Create Dramatic Theatrical Zoom Effect

October 31, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Once in a while, Instagram shows up with new tools for its users to dramatically alter the nature of their video. Features like Boomerang and Hyperlapse have been adored and used across most of the videos in the media hosting app. Now, it’s the turn of a new theatrical tool.

The latest addition is Superzoom, a feature that takes the shots up and close to create dramatic zoom shoots which you could often witness in movies. And Superzoom can be used not just for selfies, it can be used upon anything, say a half-eaten sandwich as explained by the official blog. The videos will last for three seconds, but you can extend it to up to 15 seconds by holding down the record button.

The new option comes under the filter option beneath the record button. Just tap the filter, hit record and the app will automatically zoom in on an object alongside adding a suspenseful music. If features like Boomerang and Hyperlapse have just managed to mimic the services often by others, Superzoom is completely fresh, offering what Snapchat hasn’t yet managed to tap in.

Alongside, Instagram is also rolling out a slew of new face filters for Halloween. The filters will be available until November 1. The list includes some intriguing ones like the ones that transforms you into a zombie, vampire, flying bat and more. Additionally, there are also filters available to up the ante like the one that garnishes your videos with a night-mode filter.

All the features are now available for both Android and iOS versions of the app.
