Does the H5 have a metal tripod socket?
May 27, 2006

I was looking at the S2 and H2 in Best Buy today and the S2 was more comfortable to hold, but both had screw in handles by which they were tethered to the display and holding them by the handle made the H2 less awkward to hold.

I was just wondering if the tripod mount was metal, because it might not be a bad idea to put some sort of handle on it to make gripping it easier.

I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of the H5 so I can see how that feels to hold.

I did not find the thumb resting place on the H2 in a bad spot, but wasn't crazy about the non-raised power button.

The Canon seems to be too cluttered with buttons!
