MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

This API is available on Firefox OS for privileged or certified applications only.


The zoomRatios property is an Array of numbers representing all the supported zoom ratios. If the camera has no zoom capabilities, the value is null.


var zooms = instanceOfCameraControl.capabilities.zoomRatios


Return an Array of numbers, or null if the camera has no zoom capabilities.


var options = {
  camera: navigator.mozCameras.getListOfCameras()[0]
function onSuccess(camera) {
  var zooms = camera.capabilities.zoomRatios;

  if (Array.isArray(zooms)) {
    zooms.forEach(function (value) {

navigator.mozCameras.getCamera(options, onSuccess)


Not part of any specification; however, this API should be removed when the WebRTC Capture and Stream API has been implemented.
