    Sales of printers and multifunction products fell 4.2% in the second quarter to a total of 7.7 million units amid poor sales of photo printers, industry-tracker Gartner Inc. said on Tuesday.Also weighing on unit shipments was a move by many vendors to stop bundling free printers with purchases of computers or digital cameras, the researcher said.Hewlett-Packard Co.  easily continued to dominate shipments of both inkjet and page-printer shipments with a 56.4% and 42.7% respective share of the markets.H-P and Canon Inc. were the only top-tier vendors to enjoy growth in the market for inkjet printers and multifunction devices, which also allow users to do things like make copies and send faxes, Gartner said.
