HP Introduces New Line of Photo Printers

Computer and printer maker Hewlett-Packard Co. on Monday announced new photo printers that it said produce better looking prints than a traditional photo lab.

HP also rolled out three digital cameras that can be configured to alert friends and family automatically by e-mail about new photos and store the pictures temporarily on an HP Web site.

The system, dubbed Instant Share, has been available since May on a $500 HP camera, but HP says it needed to offer the service at a lower price point for it to catch on big. The new cameras with the system, models 320, 620 and 720, start at $179.

Hewlett-Packard, the No. 1 desktop printer maker, began a roll-out of a new line in June.

The four inkjet printers released on Monday are mid- to high-end, costing $179 to $399, and intended primarily for printing digital photos, which HP sees as the key driver for future sales of its imaging and printing products.

The new printer models are 130, 7150, 7350 and 7550.
