Giant Digital Stop Watch

I need some help. I need one of those big digital clocks that keeps track of time like a stopwatch or a countdown so we know how long we've gone on a shoot. Or so we can see how much time we have left ona live program.

I've looked all over B&H and I guess I'm not using the right search words.

What do they call them?

I want the biggest one I can mount to a camera, about the size of a big, tall text book.

What are they called? A link from B&H would be nice too if you find one! :)

Google:

• digital timer

•countdown timer

... and/or add any or all of the following:

• large

• display

• up/down

--

There are dozens and dozens of timers, $10.00 and up. Most of them are smaller than the size you're looking for, so unfortunately you'll have to dig through the pile a bit...

Or you might try someplace like Markertek.com ...

It's pretty clear he doesn't just want a clock. He wants a timer that counts up or down and presumably shows seconds as well.

Possibly something like this?

LARGE DISPLAY DIGITAL LED TIMER COUNTDOWN CLOCK COUNT DOWN CLOCK

So he does Adam, must have been the thought of a clock that size mounted on a camera :)

Cheers.
