I'm considering purchasing a Canon i850 or S320 for use with my Mac but though they both come with MAc drivers, the included software is not Mac compatible. Does this make a difference. i.e. is the software necessary for good printing? Should I consider a different brand? -- Alan...

    I'm considering purchasing a Canon i850 or S320 for use with my Mac but
    though they both come with MAc drivers, the included software is not Mac
    compatible. Does this make a difference. i.e. is the software necessary for
    good printing? Should I consider a different brand?

    I have the i850, using it with a PC but am not using any of the
    included software.

    Hi, uh, ajb,

    I have a Lexmark and an Epson currently, and have had Canon, NECs, and I
    can't remember what all brands that I use to print with my Macs. As long as
    you have drivers, you can print. You use your photo editing program to
    print the images.

    Have fun.

    Hi, Randall,

    Has this been a problem for ou? I've never used "included" software for
    anything except the drivers. I don't even know what they included for PC.

    I was able to download the needed software for my s520 from the canon
    site.

    Works like dream under OS/X

    In general, the drivers are an absolute necessity, but you should
    always check the web site for updated versions.

    The bundled software (in my experience) is almost always useless, and
    certainly not a necessity. I've seen "lite" versions, and even
    time-limited demos included. And the Mac offerings (if any) are even
    more pathetic.

    Choose your printer based on it's qualities AS USED WITH THE DRIVERS
    FOR YOUR OS and buy whatever sofdtware works for you.

    Hint: I do almost everything with the shareware GraphicConverter for OS
    X.
