Thanks by the icons!
I think is better replace only the labels by the icons and put the combos in
the toolbar too.
In this way you can see the values of the selected timer and duration,
and we don't need change the texts.

> Timer: "inmediate" for "Start inmediatly", "5 seconds" for "Wait 5
> seconds", "10 seconds" for "Wait 10 seconds".
> Duration: "2 minutes" for "Record 2 minutes", and so on.
> What do you think?  we can discuss this on the design meeting, I can
