4.0 out of 5 stars Great little printer, let down by lack of accessories, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon SELPHY CP900 Compact Photo Printer - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Accessory)
A couple of things to be aware of with this printer: firstly, it does NOT come with either ribbon or paper included, you need to buy those separately, or be very frustrated that you can't try out your new purchase at once. Best value box set is the KP-108IN, with 3 ribbons and 108 sheets of 4x6 paper.

Secondly, for anyone on Mac running Mountain Lion, the included software disc does NOT support Mountain Lion. Yeah, really. How long has Mountain Lion been available now? Must do better, Canon. Anyway, you'll have to go to Canon UK website/support and download the appropriate driver from there.

Once you get past these initial hurdles, things get better. The printer is compact, but rattles out prints within a minute, and the colours are pretty accurate right out of the box - I haven't even bothered with profiles. The Canon Easy Print app (from your app store) lets you print by wi-if direct from your phone or iPad with no hassle. You could carry the whole thing easily to an event, and print onsite. If you just want something to print the occasional snap from your phone, or a set of holiday prints right from the memory card or computer, this is ideal. Easy to set up and simple to operate - what more do you need?

(Well, a ribbon and some paper in the box would be nice!)

Just wanted to add, I am now running OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) on my Macbook and there is NO DRIVER available on the canon website, rendering the printer I've had for only 6 months completely useless.

Hi Debzidoo, I don't know if you still have problems with your printer. However I found this solution online, maybe it can help.
