How I can get crisp clear photos with my Nikon D80 and 18-70mm lens?

Hello, At work I use a Nikon D80 camera with a 70mm Nikkor-18. Most of the photos of people travel through the building, which is low on. I prefer not to use flash, and the priority of speed, a speed of 1 / 125 of a second and an ISO of at least 1600 or higher. The pictures never look sharp unless the ISO is too high, but then it all looks terribly grainy. If I use flash camera, natural light is not and end up with horrible shadows. Is there any advice on how to get sharp pictures with granite? A tripod is not an answer and I am in constant motion. A large flash may not work well and I have to take pictures quickly. Thank you.

As fhotoace say, you are in a difficult situation. I can only add to the advice published. When you mentioned flash, I assume you mean the built in flash. I know this flash power may be greater, or not effective, and coverage is less than optimal. However, I have had good luck with flash shoe, especially if you can use the functions TTL. Add to fhotoace, I think you can get better results using bounce flash, but with flashes of the shoe, and Nikon flashes, it can bounce on a card. Not know if you remember seeing journalists with index cards in their flashes, but this is basically a short-range rebound do not need to bounce off ceilings or walls. Many have built in flashes Nikon construction and have occasionally in diffusers. These all reduce the severity of flash. Using the method should be rebound able to reduce your ISO and are less grainy. As for quick shots, I know Nikon had a flash that is used to maintain a value of some bursts of load and recycling is still very fast. I was looking at the specifications and about 3 seconds is all you need to recycle now. Finally, you mentioned that the tripod is not an answer but have you considered a monopod? It is clearly much more help but without being too cumbersome with its creation. While you do not have too much coffee and / Or sugar, add a monopod support you can give 1 / 60 easy (I've uploaded half a second on a monopod holding your breath). Again, this is just an appendix. If anything a monopod flash and can be returned if not suitable.
