The part about the timestamps is a normal warning with XFS (there is an option to format with 64 bit timestamps but I seem to recall it being flakey somehow)

It might be worth checking or repairing your drive to see if that fixes your camera issue, see: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/XFS#Repair (you might need to install `xfsprogs`)

See what changes would be made (without making any actual changes):
xfs_repair -n /dev/sdX1 -t 120

"If the journal log has become corrupted, you can reset the log by specifying the -L option to xfs_repair."
Warning: "The xfs_repair utility cannot repair an XFS file system with a dirty log. To clear the log, mount and unmount the XFS file system. If the log is corrupt and cannot be replayed, use the -L option ("force log zeroing") to clear the log, that is, xfs_repair -L /dev/device. Be aware that this may result in further corruption or data loss."

xfs_repair -L /dev/sdX1 -t 120
