HP were among the first companies to produce mass-market laser- and inkjet-printers - both in c.1984[2].

In 1997, HP introduced the Photosmart system - a combination of digital camera, scanners for existing photos and negatives and photo printers. The firmware of the early HP camera models was based on the Digita operating system. Partnered with Pentax and distributed a couple of their cameras under the Photosmart branding. Many cameras from the early 2000's had the Pentax branding on the lens.
