comment Need a list of good Macro/Super Macro digital cameras
I would assume so: a coworker has told me about pointing his camera straight up, putting a dollar bill on top of the lens, aiming at a light, and getting a clear image of the bill. It's the wrong definition of "0", but it's still impressive.

comment What are the main factors that will affect the sharpness of my images?
Are your subjects always the same size in the frame (filling the frame then zooming out on your monitor will make the subject look much sharper than if the subject is very small and you have to zoom all the way in on your monitor)?

comment Can the sun damage the camera sensor? Under what conditions?
No sensor damage, but the only case of camera damage I've seen online (with pictures of the damage) from exposure to the sun is: the-digital-picture.com/Help/Flare.aspx

comment What do I need to know before attempting to photograph Venus in transit?
Are you using a telescope? Venus will be a very small dot across the sun. I don't want to dissuade you from experimenting, but... you might do better by going to a transit party and capturing pictures of the event and the people there.

comment Why color and saturation is less on compact than on DSLR?
Take a look at photo.stackexchange.com/questions/19580/… . I don't think sensor size has much to do with color/saturation. Different classes of cameras and cameras from different brands probably have different levels of post-processing, though, which does have a large effect on saturation. If you're seeing something specific, maybe you can post sample pictures (and tell us what color settings are in use in each camera)?

What contrast and saturation settings did you use on each camera?

comment What program can I use to combine approximately 1000 .jpg images into a slideshow video (.mov, .mpg, .avi, or similar)?
also see photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1254/… and photo.stackexchange.com/questions/21089/… . One for OS X and one for Linux, but both have answers that mention ffmpeg, which I believe is available for Windows.
