What resolution can I capture in?

Hyperspektiv currently records in HD 720p resolution. We have plans to introduce the ability to record in 1080p very soon.


Does it only capture in square?

Nope! Tilt your device 90° into landscape mode to experience and capture video and photos in full widescreen.


How do I use the Wildcard filter?

Wildcard is a fun and experimental feature which randomizes all our effects and gives you truly unique and near-limitless possibilities. Simply tap the Wildcard filter, and each time you tap it you will get a new set of random effect combinations. Have fun with it.


I can’t see very much with some filters, what gives?

Some of our filters are sensitive to the amount of light coming in through the camera. Try moving into brighter or dimmer light for varied results.


Some of my videos look compressed or not as good on Instagram — why?

Currently Instagram adds compression when you upload videos. Unfortunately this means you may occasionally notice some compression artifacts or degradation in the finer details of your Hyperspektiv videos after they’re posted on Instagram. This is an issue with Instagram’s app and it’s something we hope they address some day.

Vine, Twitter and Facebook currently have settings which allow you to enable HD uploads which we strongly recommend when uploading videos made with Hyperspektiv.


How do I add music to my videos?

Currently we use a number of different apps to add music to our videos such as iMovie and Vine. Hyperspektiv videos really come to life with music.


Can I save my settings or create my own filters?

Coming soon.
