Now that we can zoom in on Instagram, it reminded us of how bad Instagram was at taking pictures in low light environments. But worry not, this is being rectified.
When using the latest version of Instagram (that’s version 9.2.1), you will notice a half-moon shaped button appear at the bottom of your screen, when trying to shoot in a low light environment. Do not confuse this with your iPhone’s “do not disturb”, as this is actually a really cool new feature. Once tapped, your camera sensor will automatically adapt its exposure to help you capture better images and videos in darkness. Cool, huh?
There is a catch though. For now, the low light feature is only available on Instagram Stories, and not regular uploads. However, there is no doubt that this will soon make its way to uploads as well. It is, after all, a feature that has been long-expected.
