    This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

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


    The flashModes property is an Array of strings identifying each of the flash modes supported by the camera. Possible values are auto, off, on or torch.


    flash = instanceOfCameraControl.capabilities.flashModes

    Return an Array of strings.


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