Lack of AE/AF lock in Pro mode is crippling

    The camera app has it in normal photo mode and in videos. So why not in pro mode? Manual focus is really only feasible in macro shots, anything further away is impossible to get focused properly, especially in outdoors situations. A phone screen just doesn't have the fidelity required for evaluating focus at distance, nor is the manual focus dial accurate enough to dial it in properly. The touch to focus sticking time is also way too short to actually ever be useful. AE/AF locking, just like already implemented in the other camera modes, would solve these problems. Am I insane for wanting this? Am I missing something here? Seems like such a simple oversight.

    I am glad I did a Forum search for this feature. I cannot seem to activate AE/AF lock on the 'Pro Mode' to save some extra time...

    AE lock specially is very useful in the pro as it allows quick on flight fine tuning/adjustment of a baseline exposure on a particular area.

    So I guess it is normal that it does not work in Pro Mode. Any luck this feature can be implemented somehow?
