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

CameraControl.capabilities Redirect 1

« DOM Reference

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

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


The capabilities property return a CameraCapabilities object, which describes the capabilities of the camera.


var capabilities = instanceOfCameraControl.capabilities


Return a CameraCapabilities object describing the camera's capabilities.


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

  for ( var prop in capabilities ) {
    console.log(prop + " : " + capabilities[prop]);

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.
