Instagram: making people feel like professional photographers since 2010. The app is always finding new ways to help us level up our photog skills, and Focus is the latest addition. What is Instagram Focus? This new camera is going to have you holding more selfie photoshoots than ever before.
What is it?
By opening the camera within Instagram, you can use Focus to take both video and photo portraits of yourself or others. You'll notice once there's someone in the frame, that person will stay focused, while the background will begin to softly blur.
What you end up with is a more polished, high-quality photo or video that will have people begging you to teach them your tricks.
How To Use:
It's super easy to use, too. Just open up Instagram's camera, and next to Superzoom, you'll see Focus. When you're done taking your picture or video, you'll have the option to apply filters, text, or stickers. When your masterpiece is complete, you can add it to your Story or send it to your friends through Instagram direct.
Where is it available?
Focus is available for iPhone and some Android devices as part of version 39.0. If you thought Instagram was a time-suck before, you haven't seen anything yet.
