What flash do you use?

I am using SB500, got it used.

The output is not bright enough for me when bouncing sometimes. I want to keep ISO as low as possible. And it is not bright enough for F8 or even F5.6.

So I looked into a larger one and tried the Godox TT685ii. It does support iTTL, but it is not compatible with Nikon CLS, i.e. my SB 500 (as commander) cannot trigger a remote Godox TT685ii, and vice versa. So I sent it back.

I checked the user manual more carefully afterwards and found out that TT685 gen 1 supports CLS while gen 2 does not. I may try gen 1 soon. If not, then I will get an used SB 700.
