Facebook just announced today Instagram users will now have the option to record 15 seconds video clips after updating to version 4.0, not only one-upping Vine
in recording time, but also with the addition of built-in image stabilization and filters to style recorded clips. 13 new custom filters were designed specifically for video (here's my test clip
), and users can choose specific frames to become their "cover image" (the first image before launching 'play').
Download Instagram 4.0 for iOS at the iTunes app store and the Google Play Store.
