Hypoxic Hypeye Alpha Mini | HYPOXIC HAMI | Status Indicator for Sony Cameras
Simplistic Status Indicator for Sony Cameras
Finally, a simple external "tally" indication system for Sony Multi/Micro USB based Cameras, Action Cams, and Camcorders.
Hypeye Alpha Mini's (HAMI) ultra-bright LEDs shine unmistakably in your peripheral vision: blue for “powered on,” red for “record” and yellow for “warning/error.” The Hypeye Alpha Mini gets your mind back in the game -- and off your helmet-mounted Sony Camera.
The HYPEYE ALPHA MINI (HAMI) works with all Multi/Micro USB based Sony Camcorders. The important indicator here is "Multi." If your camera does not have the words MULTI on the port, it will not work!
The electronics are the same in both orientations of the Hypeye Alpha Mini. The plug's orientation is tailored to your particular camera.
See our recommended orientations in our Compatibility List on the HYPEYE Alpha Page.
Important Operation Notes
The HAMI works off of the new Sony Multi Interface. Unlike LANC, or AV/R, this interface does not provide any status on the camera's current state. Errors like card not inserted, formatting errors, wrong mode, etc. will not be shown like in the past.
The blue LED is no longer "we are ready to record",
- Recording ceases due to card error: Led will change from Red->Blue
- Battery runs low: Red->Yellow. The camera may still be recording. Unfortunately, the "recording has stopped" feedback is the same as the battery is low. There is no way for the HAMI to discern between these cases.
- Card Missing, card in backwards, image database corrupt, etc: LED may be blue on some cameras.
