Instagram, now owned by Facebook, has acquired the Luma Camera app and removed it from App Store. The app featured real time video stabilisation and rolling shutter correction, real time filters, and pinch to zoom.
Luma announced the acquisition on its blog today.
Eighteen months ago, we embarked on a mission to make capturing and sharing beautiful videos easy without expensive software or heavy equipment. By joining the exceptionally talented team at Instagram, we’re taking another big step towards realising that mission. We’re incredibly excited to be able to help make a product that is already used and loved by millions of people even better.
As part of our move to Instagram, we are shutting down the Luma service. We want to make this transition as painless for you as possible. Here is a link to download your videos. We will also continue to support Luma until December 31st, 2013. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or requests for technical support at [email protected]
A heartfelt thanks goes out to every user, family member, investor and friend. We couldn’t have achieved this milestone without your help. We hope to see you on Instagram!
