I have also D90, but I remember my consternation after I made first pictures and checked them on the computer... Why I bought a new camera, which produced so much noise...???, I thought. Fortunately it was not so hard to find the reason...:)
Default seting of ISO is "auto control" ON. If you go to ISO sensitivity settings in MENU you can adjust the maximum sentivity for this auto control. 3200 is the highest, you can go easily lower and "save" it.
If you use manual settings of ISO, this feature is OFF ( of course ).

Hope to help you!

Hi Susan, it sounds like your camera could be using Auto ISO, when in "cool feature modes" this would cause a jump in ISO it probably also shoots in JPEG too! this happens when in full Auto mode, just a thought, hope this is of help to you.
