    CameraControl.sceneMode 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 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.


    var mode = instanceOfCameraControl.sceneMode


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


    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)


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