To start, I opened Instagram on my mobile phone and right here's exactly what I saw:
It's a bit confusing, but the button on the bottom that's highlighted in blue? That's not the existing view you have, although that's absolutely an usual interface convention. You're on the major feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Strange, I know.
Tap on the camera symbol under-- center!-- with the blue highlight. Currently your camera will turn on as well as you'll see a preview of the picture you're about to take:
To take a photo, tap on the blue button. To make a (short) video clip, tap on the video camera icon to the right of the button. Faucet on the left switch as well as you can access your existing images on the phone (what I normally make use of, making use of the normal phone camera app for taking the picture).

Successive, I'll fine-tune the Comparison given that I discover that on my apple iphone, at the very least, it's constantly simply a bit less than I choose:
