I have a camera from the future

My K-1 mkII has been repaired and now comes from the future! Manufacture date is now showing as 2022:09:30. The original date from when it was just a K-1 was 2016.03.04 which didn't change when it was uprated to mkII.

The workshop operator accidentally mixed-up with the manufacturing date of your Pentax K1 mk III , wuuuppsss Have you checked the number of AF points and if the DNG that now show 9000 pixel on the long side?

AF? Where we’re going, we don’t need AF.

They "future-proofed" it, as they say.

I wondered what if (Osiris forbid) it needed warranty repairs BEFORE the apparent date of manufacture ?

There's an awesome sci-fi story in there somewhere -- a camera that takes pictures of the subjects on the future might be able to take:

A summer landscape that shows the upcoming fall foliage.

A wedding photograph that shows the future off spring (or divorce) of the couple.

A picture of a horse race track that shows the future Kentucky Derby winner.

A camera that exists and doesn't exist. One must attempt to take a picture of a cat to find out the camera's true state.

If there ain't no cat you ain't where it's at.
