Instagram adds fire, paparazzi flashes and more to Superzoom camera filter Tech| Innovation
The social media platform has added six new modes – Paparazzi, Fire, Hearts, Nope, Bummer, and Surprise – to its popular Superzoom camera effect.
The Superzoom was first introduced in Oct 2017 and basically users get a chance to record a short clip that zooms in on a subject and it becomes dramatic with added sound effects.
Now you can do more with effects like Paparazzi, which adds camera flashes to your video and gives you a taste of what it must be like to be Kylie Jenner when she’s photographed leaving a restaurant.
Another feature is Fire, which adds burning flames into the video, perfect for illustrating red-hot situations or flaming #haters.
Feeling romantic? Then add the cheesy Hearts effect to show some lovin’ to anyone or anything. I suggest that the filter be used for only pizza and pisang goreng.
Don’t like pizza and pisang goreng? Fine. Use the Nope to explain how you feel with a big red X camera effect.
There is also an effect called Bummer which gives you a melodramatic black and white camera filter complete with falling leaves.
Finally there is Surprise, a comic book-like effect for heroic moments or to celebrate the little things in life like a new camera feature by Instagram.
