The D1x's accessory shoe (Hot-shoe) will accept the following Nikon
Speedlights without a sync cable: SB-50DX, SB-28DX, SB-28, SB-27,

three silver boxes inside the main exterior carrying box ("retail
box"?). Each box contains different items; 1. the main camera and
software, 2. the battery and 3. battery charger.
