While some Instagram users (on iOS) can speed up video with Hyperlapse, now all Instagram users can slow their videos down, with a slo-mo video option being added to the app.

Instagram also announced five new filters: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua.

Instagram announced these new features and filters in a blog post:

In December 2012, we added Mayfair and Willow to the Instagram filter family—and a lot has happened in the last two years. Photography trends have evolved, and the capabilities of the camera on your phone have vastly improved. We’ve seen tremendous creativity within the community, not only in the moments they share, but in the time spent carefully composing and editing photos and videos to bring out emotions and make them beautiful.

Inspired by the photography, art, fashion and design of the global Instagram community, we’re releasing five new filters that we believe are our best yet. You’ll see the filters at the front of your filter tray: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua. They soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel you want for your each photo.

This release is now out for Android and iOS Instagram users.

People can also choose their favorite filters and re-arrange them in whichever order they choose, hiding the ones they don’t use.

Readers: What do you think of the new filters?
