    Photo printer comparability
    I have been looking for a driver for my new imac 10.8 Mountain Lion to connect to an existing Canon Selphy ES3. It appears this isn't possible, which is annoying as its a good little printer. Can anyone help me solve this problem, and if not, recommend a new photo printer (preferably wifi). I don't want to replace my main printer, so only want one for photo use.

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    There is no driver for Mountain Lion listed, however, try using the Lion driver which is provided by Canon: LINK

    Specs:
    2012 13" MBP (2.5 i5, 8GB)
    I found a 10.8 driver here. It would seem that ML is supported (unless I'm reading things wrong).

    I just checked that site and it appears those are not drivers but only software. The US Canon site states that Mountain Lion is not supported but I suspect he may be able to use the Lion driver instead. Worth a try.

    Thanks all.

    Have tried all of the above, but nothing seems to work. Would invest in a new one, but just unsure what best to buy.

    I have three printers that I use and all are compatible with Mountain Lion:

    HP, Epson, and Canon. Brother is also another good choice as they generally support the latest versions of OS X.
