CameraControl.onShutter 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 onShutter property is used to set an event handler for the camera's "shutter" event, to trigger a shutter sound and/or a visual shutter indicator.


instanceOfCameraControl.onShutter = funcRef;

Where funcRef is a function to be called when the camera shutter is down.


var options = {
  camera: navigator.mozCameras.getListOfCameras()[0]
function onSuccess( camera ) {
  camera.onShutter = function () {
    console.log("The camera is now turned off.");

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.
