nx300: where is "shoot without lens"

i just got my nx300 this afternon
i cant find anything in the menu to set "shoot without lens", which i believe is necessary to be set to "enabled" if one is to shoot with legacy manual lens
i read the manual like 3 times and i couldnt find it there either
am i missing something here?
fw is still the original 1.0

If you use a suitable adapter for legacy lenses, the camera will shoot without any problem!

Your adapter just has to depress the mechanical switch in the lens mount. Some adapters are problematic, most are fine.  As Technoworld already stated, there is no firmware setting in the menus.

Search this forum for discussion of adaptors, some work better than others.
