I'm having a weird problem that's tough to search for because of all the shitty ass blogs and linkbait sites..
I use IG when I'm out cycling, because it integrates into Strava and adds all the photos I take to my road/mountain bike activity. It's pretty spiffy, and a cool way to auto-organize photos that I take, since it attaches them to rides.
Sometimes I'll take a photo of a moving bike, and the app will "stutter", so to speak. Like today, I took a pic of my buddy Josh riding over a rock. I got the shot right where I wanted it, and for a second it showed on the instagram screen the right way, then the actual picture it saved was 4-5 frames later. So while I did hit the shutter at the right time (eg: the top of the rock), the saved picture is of him riding down the other side.
It happens sometimes when I take a still picture too - like I'll snap a pic of a tree, move my hand to start the save dialog, and it'll blur the frame. I see the picture that I actually want to take for a second or two, but then the app does (something) and jacks it up.
Anyone run into this?
I'm guessing you're using the built in camera in instagram?
In the android version, there's an option under settings to not use the built in camera, or disable it's 'High-Quality Image Processing'. I'd try disabling the latter to see if that helps, or disable the IG camera if it doesn't.
Oh, and to clarify, I'm giving my opinion as a mobile developer, not a 'Hardcore Instagram nerd'. (I don't actually use the app myself )
