Instagram introduced press-and-hold video capture at yesterday's Facebook press event, leaving many Vine users wondering if they should abandon Twitter's video-sharing app. In the video, watch Instagram's newest feature in action and discover why the filtered, square-shaped photo-/video-sharing network could trump Vine.
The major differences between Instagram and Vine:
- Longer video — Instagram captures 15-second-long video and Vine captures six seconds.
- Editing clips — Mobile movie makers can delete scenes or "clips" without having to restart the entire video recording.
- Filters — Because it's Instagram, there are 13 new filters designed just for video.
- Custom cover image — Instagram users can choose the capture that best represents their photo, as well.
