    It looks like MacOS is also affected by the same camera firmware issue:

    There are only 2 quirks for Fujifilm cameras in the linux usb mass storage driver. And both models are very old. X-series cameras supports only PTP mode AFAIK.

    From the mailing list:
    Thanks, I came across this while debugging why directories produced on my Fuji X-T4 were truncated at 2^12 dentries.
    Huh! That's interesting. Older cameras (X-Trans III based and older) stores only 1000 photos per folder.

    The Fuji low end cameras are crap, but the X series is pretty solid design overall with long term commitment to firmware updates, from what I've heard.

    Engl is not my native tongue... basically that is what I have meant with this post.

Plug it in the other device, copy from it, unplug it. That's not what ZFS is intended for. ZFS is an enterprise grade filesystem, volume management system designed for data integrity using multi-storage device fail over. That's NOT simple and its management isn't simple! It's exactly what exFAT is intended for between disparate devices.

    Why do people even think ZFS is going to take over the world, somehow? Have you even USED it? Good luck getting that beast to work in your dSLR.
    What's so hard about automating "zpool import -f $pool_on_inserted_disk"? From there it acts like any other file system to copy things over and go from device to device.

    FWIW, I like the idea of being able to zfs send/recv sd cards.

    I've used OpenZFS going on seven years. It only gets better and better.

    I wonder if a new ZFS lite profile, a profile that that has a lot enterprise features disabled, would work in a DSLR? Like the GRUB profile limited even further. Like you said, ZFS has a lot of features. It also allows disabling those features and a systemd unit could be setup to only allow the DSLR to mount zpools with the zfs-lite profile set.

    I don't know about that, lol. It is simply a waste of time for 99.999% of people. ;-)

    OP wanted something that simply works everywhere. Good luck getting it working on IoT devices, and thanks for quadrupling the cost of those IoT devices with the size of RAM and PSRAM required to mount a ZFS volume to hold one JPEG lol.

    In a year or two OpenZFS will likely fit that requirement. It's already on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, illumos, and macOS with Windows support up and coming (already there via DIY WSL2 builds).

    Does anyone know of a (feature-filled) file system that's actively being worked on for multiple operating systems? AFAICT it's basically exFAT, NTFS, and OpenZFS with honorable mentions for ext2 and BTRFS.

    Is this issue with cards formatted in camera and with the camera connected via USB like a storage medium, cards formatted in the camera accessed in a card reader, or cards formatted in a PC and read from the camera or a card reader?
