The previous firmware update for the Samsung NX1 was quite significant, but Samsung is far from done with the Tizen based NX1 Smart Camera. This morning version 1.40 has been released and is a 308Mb zipped download. We have improvements in continuous shooting, Improved Zoom AF and other enhancements and bug-fixes.
