Instagram Finally Gets Landscape Support For Shooting Photo And Video



Instagram for iPhone has received a minor update in the App Store that brings a long overdue feature. You can finally shoot in landscape mode when taking stills or video. In the past, shooting in anything other than portrait wasn’t supported within the Instagram app. Now the orientation will adapt like the regular iOS Camera. When the iPhone is rotated, Instagram’s camera buttons rotate to match.

Cinema, an image stabilization feature that was introduced alongside video a couple weeks ago, has been added to the iPhone’s front-facing camera. Today’s update also packs bug fixes and other random improvements, so be sure to download it from the App Store.

    Call my cynical but… Well… why does it even matter? All of the pictures are square anyway.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of being able to snap a photo with the volume buttons, but… your pictures are all square. “Landscape” support seems, you know, silly.
