Are you sure they weren't pulling your leg??? Fitting a camera to count pages seems pointless when pretty much all printers have paper detectors to tell when the paper has gone through successfully! The HP software even tells us how many dots of each colour are put on the page (and I'm pretty sure that isn't done my a man with a coloured pencil making the dots :-))

Nashuatec is a pretty well established company although they mainly do "big" printers; they're now part of the NRG group (I think the other two bits are Ricoh and Gestetner; I'm sure that the older ones here will remember the Gestetner name!)
