comment How can I prevent someone from zooming in to a photograph I send them?
This makes no sense at all. If you sent an image to someone viewing on a phone vs a 4K display, it would take completely different resolutions to zoom at 30%. The only thing you can do is send an image with the maximum details you want them to see.

comment What can I do when my Nikon D5200 gives an SD card error with every card?
Format the card. Even on another camera but make sure its completely blank. I've seen this happen on a Nikon 1 J5 just last week. it didn't like that the card had some hidden files introduced by a Mac.

comment When shooting in A-mode, at times the shutter speed becomes too slow to hand hold and shoot. How do I solve this?
Exactly. There is always a compromise and you need to be familiar with your camera to know what ISO you consider acceptable. After which obviously you would have to resort to another change such as a brighter aperture or camera support like a tripod.

comment How close are we to the sensor pixel size limit?
Intuitively I would say we hit the diffraction limit long before wavelength but I've not worked out the math.

comment Taking care of first DSLR
@Holmes.Sherlock - UV filters severely degrade the quality of images, particularly cheap ones. You can find in this site plenty of examples of people wondering what ruined their images with the answer being the UV filter. Unfortunately, sellers are eager to sell you these things because the profit margin is so high. For physical protection and to improve image quality, use a lens-hood in the orientation it was intended.

comment How does a DSLR's mirror mechanism work?
Have you searched online? I know I've seen this before, someone even filmed it working with an ultra-high-speed camera.

comment Why is my Sony A57 creating low res JPGs?
You are complaining about the resolution yet you mention storage space. What is in fact the resolution? You should see this in the Properties dialog or with any program that shows EXIF. If using nconvert just use nconvert -info <filename>.

comment Nikon D3200 18-105mm VR Lense and macro photography
@Lanka - It's just historical. Macro is from the lens' perspective (takes a small subject and makes it big) and Micro is fro the subject's perspective (takes photo of a small subject). A related term 'microscope' is some that lets you see small things.
