commonly used - and already in the film days.

And that's the way I have understood the current dSLRs do when monig to Hi_xx settings. Would though better have some higher truly supported ISO setting as those are done using the analog amplifiers in the chip and thus slightly lower noise than those pushed Hi_xx "equivalents".
