I agree on just about everything

I realize it is too late for NX1 feature request, but here is what I want from NX1:

  • Mag alloy construction (every other top tier camera uses it)
  • New and improved sensor
  • Eye detect AF (focus on nearest eye) -> this is very handy, especially with large aperture lenses.
  • AF button (ability to turn off AF with shutter press, like all decent SLR cameras have)
  • OLED Viewfinder, large
  • Better on sensor PDAF/CAF
  • Allow manual focus at points other then center for non-AF lenses.
  • Put the USB port so it isn't in the handgrip (can use NX30 while charging via USB, but it is difficult to hold with USB/HDMI cable sticking out of grip)
  • Longer than 4 minute bulb exposure and disable of dark frame subtraction for bulb
  • Use timer delay for bracketing shots (avoids shake) or allow bracketing remote viewfinder app
  • Battery Grip
  • Faster buffer clearing
  • Larger buffer (at least twice as large as NX30)
  • 4k video (I don't care about this feature, but some will)

I agree on all points, but especially these:

  • Eye detect AF is very handy, that one we could certainly use.
  • AF button is also something that I've wanted to see as long as I've used the NX20 - and that could be introduced with a simple firmware update.
  • Sensor update is also dues, I guess.
  • Fast buffer clearing (i.e. no lag when operating the camera in any situation)
  • we definitely need manual focus point selection (for enlarged focus point and focus peaking) for manually focused lenses. Only using the center point doesn't do it. 

I don't really care about video, but even my phone (Galaxy note 3) has 4k video, so why not the camera... What I would rather want to see, is high speed video with very high frame rate (120fps or more)

I would also like to see better customisation options - in style of the Sony A7, which lets you basically put any function to any of the seven customisable buttons!
