Camera Base / Tripod Mount

I was smitten about the base of the D1 and thank goodness Nikon haven't changed anything here, that big pad of rubber protects the base of the camera while also providing a stable platform for camera grip against surfaces and tripod heads.

The tripod mount is metal and in line with the lens center and focal plane.

Flash Hot-shoe

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, SB-26, SB-25, SB-24, SB-23, SB-22s and SB-29.

Lens Mount

The D1x has a Nikon F lens mount, it can accept almost any Nikkor F mount lens the manual states "To take full advantage of the complete range of camera features, we recommend that you use type G or D AF Nikkor CPU lenses."

A full lens compatibility table is available on a later page of this review.

Supplied In the Box(es)

What a treat! Just like the D1 the D1x is supplied as 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.
