    Well ISO settings normally double for each manual selectable setting. So it's probably:

    ISO200, ISO400, ISO800 and ISO 1600

    However, there's an auto ISO setting too so the camera itself can probably select any figure at all between 200 and 1600

    Your answer is here at dpreview.com. Just scroll down to where it says ISO and you'll have your answer. The D70 hits quite a bit of the ISO numbers in between 200-1600 but I rarely switch from ISO 200. If it gets too dark I prefer using a tripod instead, but a higher ISO is good for action shots that can't be accomplished with a higher shutter speed or if you are shooting low lighting without a tripod. The D70 has little noise from 200-400 but of course 200 would be your choice for the least noise.

    I also wouldn't use the auto ISO setting because the feature doesn't work as well as it should. It tends to select a higher ISO more often then I would like. Most photographers like to set the ISO manually anyway.
