Stand alone camera app and HCB mode. Dear adobe, would it be possible to have an iOS app which was only he camera? Mostly to reduce the time it take to make he first photo.Anyway, regarding HBC mode I start with a quote: “Through the viewfinder of the rangefinder you can see outside the framing lines, so you will anticipate subjects getting into your frame.”In dual (or more) lens arrays, his could be done by adding in he live view of the wider angle lens a frame showing what would appear in the longer lens, so even though you would have the composition done in the wider, your image acquisition and measurements could be be done with the tele...

In this case, more than a crop overlay, would be an overlay of the tele sensor/lens FOV within the wide sensor /lens in a mobile equipped with two sensors/lenses.
I believe it would be fairly simple and would bring that particular benefit of rangefinder cameras to mobile photos. Surely soon enough a computer scientist with passion for photo and AI (everyone at Adobe Lightroom team?) would create an algorithm tracking multiple subjects in the wide space and make an aesthetically pleasing photo in the moment it clicks in the small frame and will call it artificialHCB mode...
