Instagram is adding another wacky effect to its Stories camera, and it might be my favorite one yet. Say hello to ‘Superzoom.’
It’s pretty much what it sounds like – you select an area to zoom into it in a video. It’s sure to be used for a plethora of melodramatic videos, and Instagram even includes music to add to the effect. In other words, you basically get to do this:
To give it a go just need to select Superzoom from the camera, and tap and hold to record. Alternatively, tap it once to create a 3-second Superzoom.
Considering Halloween is coming up, I’m sure it’ll be used to a bunch of creepy-zoomy videos. To that effect, Instagram has also added 5 new themed faced filters, as well as a new sticker set. The new features should be rolling out today to Android and iOS.
