Lightroom Mobile: Video Capture

As a user of the Lightroom Mobile app's Camera functionality, I would like to be able to capture video in-app so that I don't have to use two camera apps in my mobile capture workflow.

One reason I haven't been able to drop the iOS Camera app and use the Lightroom Mobile Camera is that I often use my phone to quickly capture video in addition to photos. Sure, I can use the iOS Camera app to save video to the Camera Roll and then import into Lightroom Mobile, but that complicates the workflow and requires me to do something with the original video on the Camera Roll (most likely that "something" being manually delete).

This feature would turn:

* Open iOS Camera
* Capture video
* Open Lightroom Mobile
* Import video
* Open iOS Photos
* Delete video (potentially and usually many videos)

into:

* Open Lightroom Mobile
* Capture video

Basic video capture for now at the supported resolutions and frame rates supported by each specific phone would be a huge step in the right direction. Other functionality such as playing back high frame rate video as slow motion could come later.

FWIW, I have my iPhone set up to capture video in the Camera app and have it automatically sync to my LR Mobile camera roll.  Granted, the video exists in two places now (iOS Photos/iCloud and Lr Mobile/Adobe Cloud) but at least I can quickly shoot a video on my phone and expect for it to show in my Adobe workflow.  Let me know if you'd like more explanation on how this is set up.
