comment Why use higher ISO when using a tripod and the object is static?
I really think you're reading too much into the settings. This may be something as simple as that he had the camera set to ISO 640 for something else and just didn't change it.

comment Why do my photos appear more in focus when I use a long exposure?
Whilst I understand that English may not be your first language, are you able please to expand on your question? Give an example (an example photo) with the settings used to take it. As it stands, your question makes little sense.

comment How many RAW images should I be able to take on a Canon 6d with a 32GB card?
I use a 32Gb card in my 5D Mk III and can comfortably take over a thousand. At approx 2mp less than mine, you shouldn't have any issues. That said, the exact number will vary as what you take will affect each image file size. Format the card in-camera and see if that helps.

comment Why can't I access Single Point Spot AF even when it is enabled on my 5D Mark III?
You are welcome... The little 'AF grid' icon next to that button on the back gives a clue as to its purpose ;-) Plus, hate to say it, but this is all in the manual ;-)

comment Do I need a filter for my prime lens in order to protect it from dust, splashes, etc?
Yep. Personal choice. I had an EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM that fell forward onto sand and I was VERY GLAD I had a filter on as the filter was scratched to hell but the lens was fine! Cheaper to replace a filter. HOWEVER, I appreciate that there is a very minor loss of image quality too. You can help mitigate this by using GOOD QUALITY, MULTI-COATED filters, ie - not the cheapest ones!! But like, Hoya Pro-1, Hoya HD, or B+W, etc.
