CameraControl.effect 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 effect property is a string defining the effect to be used by the camera. When set, its value must be one of the values available in CameraCapabilities.effects.


var currentEffect = instanceOfCameraControl.effect


Return a string representing the current effect used by the camera. If no effect is used, the string none is returned.


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

  if (capablities.effects.indexOf('sepia') > -1) {
    camera.effect = 'sepia';

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.
