    Sharp pictures in lowlight- f1.8 and flash!!!

    I went to a wrestling match today. With a D70 and Sb-600 i attempted to take pictures, shooting 500 at f1.8 i couldnt get sharp pictures. I even tried taking off the flash and setting shutter speed to 1000, it was dark but still not sharp. Could this have to do with my camera? dust?

    I have read that i can use the SB-600 for highspeed water shots. Im using the D70 and i cant figure out how to get to higher shutter speeds. It limits me at about 500, not nearly enough for sharp water shots.
