    Nikon branded flashes are, in my opinion, ridiculously over-priced.

    There are 2 Godox flashes that offer iTTL AND HSS. Godox TT685N takes 4 AA batteries. It is pretty much comparable to the Nikon SB-910. Godox VING V860IIN is very similar but takes a rechargable VB-18 Li-Ion Battery Pack instead of the 4 AA batteries - hence it is more expensive than the first one listed.

    Either one will work for your needs but if you are planning to use the flash off camera, then you will need a Godox trigger. Both will work with your D500.

    they also do a kit with the same flash but the X1-N or X2-N a bit cheaper

    Generally speaking yes; that would be a good start in my opinion. The TT685 is a great flash - both on and off camera - and the XPRO Controller is, in my opinion, the only way to fly. The X1 controllers are cheaper, yes, but I found them a pain in the butt to use. The XPRO is a joy. The "S-type bracket" that is included is a Bowens-type mount for modifiers such as umbrellas and soft-boxes. I don't know if that's something you plan on using but no harm in having a mount. If you know for a fact you're going to be using your flash off camera you're going to need a light stand to mount everything...

    Something like this (not a recommendation, just one I found on the same site as your flash): Collapsible Light Stand.

    Modifiers are a whole 'nother conversation.

    i was looking for wildlife shots mostly so would likely add a mag beam or better beamer (if i could get one in the UK) so it would need to be mounted on my gimbal or to the lens /body somehow - i saw a post on hear about one but cant member how they mounted it.
    thanks for all your help horoscope
