On the d300, is not possible to have a SS greater than 1/320 when using the pop flash? I can get SS greater than 1/320 when the sb800 is mounted but not when the pop up is deployed. thanks

No. Faster than 1/320 is Auto FP flash mode, and the SB flashes can do that, and the internal flash cannot. D300 page 289.

Yup, onboard flash is a no go for 1/320 and up.

However, you can use the onboard flash as a master unit in CLS mode to trigger a sb-800 in remote mode with auto-fp fully engaged.
