Official macOS Big Sur Warning Followup To FujiAddict Warning!

FujiAddict published the first warning about issues with Fujifilm cameras and OSX Big Sur here. Now Fujifilm has released their own statement which you can read below. I highly recommend sticking with OSX Catlinina or earlier for now, because fixes haven’t been coming quickly since Apple started “locking down” OSX.

Notice of Application Software Used with macOS 11.01 “Big Sur”
Thank you very much for using FUJIFILM products. We have checked the performance of our application software used with “macOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur)” which was newly released from Apple. As a result, we have confirmed the symptoms described below.

We will fix the symptoms by upgrading the application software. And we plan to post the upgraded ones sequentially on our global website.
Therefore, if you plan to upgrade the OS, keep in mind that those symptoms will occur.
Your understanding is highly appreciated.
