A few weeks ago Instagram announced a video feature that allows you to record video and add filters to it, as well as stabilize it. Now that the app has had a little time to mature, they’ve added a few features that make shooting Instagram Videos a pleasure. You can now shoot Instagram videos in landscape mode, which means that you can capture a wider angle of view for a more professional look.

We’ve blogged about the importance of holding your phone horizontally when taking video in the past, but if you’ve forgotten, here’s a refresher:

I tested out the new feature during a birthday surprise for Nathan at the office (excuse the bad singing!):

In addition, the Cinema stabilization feature is now available for the front facing camera, making it even easier to get the perfect video – no matter where you are.
