Instagram: Videos are here!

For all videofans, Instagram just got a whole lot better: Instagram with video support is here!:-)

Social video apps is a big hit at the moment, Vine, Snyppit, Snapchat and so on has made it easy to make and share short videos with your friends and network. Instagram is now entering the race by adding a video capturing feature as well.

Instagram Video: Top features:
– Up to 15 second vidoes
– Filters (yay!)
– Pick your favorite scene and set it as cover image

Many is saying this is the end of Vine – and even though I really like Vine – I think they might be right. Building a strong community and a steady app takes time and I don’t think Vine is there yet – and now they might never be? I think close to all my Vine connections are also on Instagram, what will make them keep using Vine? Instagram already has the community, all your friends and your network of photo-loving connections are already on board, the app is steady (bugs and crashes are close to non) and you have more options.

On a more positive note, I think the competition is good, it pushes progress and better solutions for the end-user. Vine (and other video app start-ups) might get the push they need to creat an even better product?

What do you think of videos on Instagram? Noisy or cool? Will you be making videos or statying with still-photos?
