Digital Video Camera Options
For optimum results select a mid range camera with a hard disk or chip
that you can connect via USB. Do not select a device which uses tape as
the storage medium.
The size of files created by a high definition camera will be extremely
large and will limit the number of studies you can save. The added
quality is typically of not significant value to warrant the storage
Sony uses their own proprietary video format that you may have to
convert so please check the video compatibility before purchasing.
Panasonic, Canon, and JVC models are suggested however you need to verify that
the specific model in question will store in one of the following
formats: AVI, MPV, MP4, MPEG, MPG and WMV. WMV is the best format size-wise.
We may play other formats too as it all depends on what
codecs that you have installed. Some of the formats above may
not play if you do not have the correct codecs installed.
If the salesperson can not advise the exact saved file format please be
aware that there are many "flavors" of each format. You may wish to
insure the camera you choose can be returned or exchanged if the
format is not compatible with the Timer Pro.
and Tablet PDA Recommendations
Timer Pro will run on
Apple iPad and iPad Mini. It will not run on the iPhone as the
screen size is too small to perform effective data collection.
Timer Pro will also run on
Android Smartphones and Android Tablets - version 2.2 or later with
an SD card. The most popular devices are the Samsung phones and the
Samsung Galaxy tablets.
If you do not have an Android phone and do not want to enter into a
phone contract, we recommend the Samsung Galaxy Player 5 (WiFi device).
This is a highly rated 6 oz. device
has a 2500 mAh battery - over twice the average phone battery
capacity. The screen size is a perfect for time study. You can also
use the device to take and watch videos in the Video Time Study

Palm Based PDA Support
As of July 2008 we no longer support Timer Pro on Palm operating system
PDA devices. This decision was made due to Palm’s declining market
share, smaller screens, less powerful processors. short battery life,
cumbersome (Hot Sync) data transfer procedure and constant minor changes
to the Palm operating system.
These factors have for some time forced us to program around these
limitations leading to a far lower quality time study experience
compared to that available from Timer Pro on the Pocket PC. All
development resources will now be focused exclusively on the Pocket PC
