You can click on the image above to see my first Instagram Video featuring…Tyler, of course. This was post-walk and you can hear him
licking working away to get a treat out of his smart toy.
As a big fan of Twitter’s Vine, I felt a bit conflicted about Facebook’s copycat move of offering videos on Instagram…but hey, that’s business and mobile video is (finally) gaining traction with the mainstream population. (Yup, this is where I plug client Hang w/.) So what did I think about Instagram Video? Well, three things:
1) I love the 13 filter options that can instantly enhance your video.
2) The image stabilization is great as it helps eliminate the shakiness in videos.
3) Compared to Vine’s 6 second maximum limit, 15 seconds for an Instagram video seems like an awfully long time. Then again, I felt a bit rushed with 6 seconds sometimes, so at least with Instagram Video, you can choose to shoot a video between 3 to 15 seconds long.
