Well, the best is 100 ISO. A good thing to learn is to use only the A/S/M mode, and control the shutter manually and let the aperture have a mind of it's own. I only use the higher ISO settings when its darker outside.

I use the C-700 as well, and all but 2 or 3 shots of mine in the data base were taken with it. Here are my settings:
aperture or shutter priority to achieve at least 1/400th of a second.
ISO 100 only.
Optical zoom only, NEVER use the digital zoom (that may be the culprit)
White balance set to auto, but frequently set it manually with white card stock.
Metering done with matrix mode 80 percent of the time, spot mode for those tricky dark or backlit shots.
