MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

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

Summary

The sceneMode property value is a string that defines the quality of exposure to use while taking pictures. When set, its new value must be chosen from the list of options specified by  CameraCapabilities.sceneModes.

Syntax

var mode = instanceOfCameraControl.sceneMode

Value

Return a string representing the current scene mode. The default value is auto.

Example

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

  if (capablities.sceneModes.indexOf('night') > -1) {
    camera.sceneMode = 'night';
  }
};

navigator.mozCameras.getCamera(options, onSuccess)

Specification

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