I’m sure you’ve all heard already: Hyperlapse, the new app from Instragram that can replicate “[w]hat was once only possible with a Steadicam or a $15,000 tracking rig is now possible on your iPhone, for free.” As in the case of DSLRS, smartphone cameras, and–of course–Instagram, Hyperlapse represents the latest in innovations reducing cost and craft for the Average Joe. The trick is elegant. A gyroscope in the machine reorients any stumble of the hand, shakiness in step. Whether Hyperlapse will reveal itself a gimmick imitation is still up for question.  For now, enjoy the ride–a record it too.
