One consistantly poor design issue with many digital slr cameras is that you can't tell the iso that's been set without pushing a button.
Some higher end models do have it on permanent display (eg. Nikon D2) but with all film cameras it's immediately visible on the dial.

Quote from timestudio
I had the same prob recently with some ballet dancers in really dark conditions, I always keep ISO on manual so you have one less variable but for the main shot on my page was shooting at 600 or 800 but with a very fast lens (1.4). You can see the grain at that so Im not sure how 3200 will turn out - Ive never used that high.

Very grainy (at 3200) but then thats an atribute some photos need.

How technology moves on.... 3200 ISO now looks like 100 ISO of a few years ago...

If you can't use flash which often spoils the mood its perfectly fine to set auto iso...select a sensible aperture and shutter speed...say f2.8 and 1/60th and let the iso float....
