NX30 EFCS disabled with Internal Wireless Flash Enabled

A minor "feature".  If you have internal wireless flash enabled, your electronic first curtain shutter (EFCS) will be disabled.

This is just a public service bulletin, as I was wondering why EFCS was greyed out and set to off.  I happened to notice it when I bought my 16-50mm f/2-2.8, so thought it might be related to that lens.  It is not.

This setting makes sense, my guess is it needs the mechanical curtain to synchronize with the flash, but at the same time when I don't actually have the flash turned on, it should allow EFCS.

Anyway, I am happy now as I know why my EFCS was disabled.  For all manufacturers of digital cameras (Samsung, Sony, Fuji, etc), please tell my why a function is greyed out if I click on it.  Since these have a full fledged OS, having some sort of help menu to handle this should be no problem.
