I have a quick question about ISO settings on my D40X. I usually have it set to 100, the lowest setting. This could be a rookie move, I'm not sure if there are times when I should be pumping it up. I don't like that grainy look.

Many times when I take a picture and look back to review it the info will show that ISO was actually raised to 400 or 500, sometimes an odd number like 320. Usually the number will be shown in red when it has been raised by the camera.

Why is this, when I supposedly have restricted it to 100?

Thank you!
