    YES! about 1 stop per extra exposure up to 3 or 4 I think... so not recommended if you're shooting multiple scenes. more for objects like moons and flashes...
    it's not like photoshop...

    1 stop meaning -0.5Ev? i took 2 exposure and use -1.0Ev as recommended in the manual but the subject turns out to be transparent. The background is ok... how har?

    1 stop == 1 EV lor...
    try to leave a BLACK area for your subject for non-"ghostly" images... becos the exposures are additive, that's why I say it's not like photoshop..

    it's like photoshop with every layer around 50%..
    and the more exposures u make, the paler everything gets, unless ur control is very good...

    By subject do you mean a person? If that's the case then use rear curtain synch with a flash unit and it should stop most of the problem from occuring.
