We're all creating videos these days, most often with our phones, which can be great or horrible, depending on how still you can be while doing it. Far too often, nearly unwatchable, nausea inducing movies are what we end up with.

The pros use very sophisticated equipment to place cameras into which stabilize the video, with various attempts to create the same results available for your smartphone if you're ok with extra expense and size.

Thanks to the video nerds at Instagram, you don't have to buy expensive cameras or stabilization equipment; in fact you don't have to buy anything at all.

The created an app they call 'HyperLapse' which can be used whether you're an Instagram user or not.

Your iPhone has a gyro inside of it, which is what the app uses to create smooth video from what would normally be very shaky and jarring. The best part is that you don't have to do any 'post production' after you shoot the video...it's just ready to go.

If you're more interested in shooting a time lapse video that's also more stable, the Hyperlapse app does that too!

There's really nothing to learn with the only option being your playback speed when you're done.
