DDS-2 tapes cannot be used in DDS drives. Several sizes are available, such as a single 4 mm wide tape capable of holding 2 GB of data. One problem with all tape systems is that if the information required is in the middle of the tape, the tape must be wound physically to that point. This makes them relatively slow for jumping backward and forward between files, but excellent when recording large amounts of information in a sequential fashion. Whilst the tapes are very cheap and the system is very reliable, the drive units themselves are quite expensive.

Densitometer A device used to measure the opacity of film (transmission) or reflectivity of paper (reflection). Image processing programs such as Photoshop have the equivalent of a densitometer (the ‘info’ dialog box) where the brightness, colour values, and address of individual pixels can be determined. The distance through which the film or sensor plane can be moved whilst the image remains in acceptably sharp focus. , large format ‘technical’ cameras.
