HP doesn't seem to have anything left to offer when it comes to cameras. The company seems to have bid these farewell and instead focuses on image editing for cameras and printing solutions in any which way you can imagine. HP offers many printer solutions, from compact trendy photo printers portable in an equally trendy bag, to large format printers that print ultra big poster sized prints.

HP digital cameras
HP no longer manufacturing digital cameras is a loss for the digital imaging industry, since the company used to develop and manufacture interesting models. Sadly, HP lacked the strategy to actually claim a market share. Perhaps their choice is not a permanent one, since the imaging industry is subject to ongoing changes.

HP Professional Photo printer
One of the large sized printers is the new HP Z3200 Professional Photo Printer. The main adjustment done to this new printer is the integration of an additional red color; HP number 73. This increases the gamma range and it enables using a more enhanced media package for printing. Additionally, the mechanism has been altered thus ensuring the printer can take on heavier tasks such as special printing media and large sticker pages. Effort was also put into the required software and firmware updates in order to make the HP Z3200 up-to-date again. The new HP Z3200 Professional Photo Printer is expected to become available from October in the United States. For information about availability in other countries, it is advised to contact your local HP representative.

HP compact photo printers
HP had some other news for consumers; a series of compact photo printers. The improvements might not seem major, however; in particular improvements on user-friendliness and printing speed seem to appeal to the consumer. The next few years, there will undoubtedly be a fierce battle as to who gets to print the digital images that are waiting at the consumers’ houses. Will the consumer take command and print via a home printer or will he or she simply press a few buttons to have his digital images processed online? There are significant interests at stake and we are curious to see how this market is going to develop. See the complete HP photo gallery at LetsGo Digital.
