Web app (HTML5) camera capture

Web app (HTML5) camera capture

What's the status on HTML5 camera capture (or photo upload from library)? Native apps can do this, but what about a html5 webapp? The good news: iOS 6 will be able to do this (coming in fall 2012), and Android version 2.3 and higher support the File API (comparison table) which allows to upload from camera or gallery (demo here). The bad news is, this is actually the deprecated way to do it, because HTML5 is moving towards getusermedia, which will also allow us to use effects and such. But the current browser support table for getusermedia decouraging. And iOS 6 won't support it yet either.
