Canon Vixia HF R800

Can anyone recommend an Anti-Glare/reflection screen protector?

 

Camera is very difficult to use out side as the reflections are terrible on the screen and i just cannot see what im filming.

 

I bought the BoxWave (clearTouch Anti-Glare (2-Pack) but it doesnt stop the glare like it claims.

 

Also where does the external microphone attach and where does the external light attatch as the there is no hot shoe like on a SLR?

To mount a mic and a light you will need something like this.vello_cb_510_dual_shoe_brackt_918053.jpg

But what about the reflections?

Another owner of this camera also said filming outside is alomst impossible becuase of the reflections on the screen.

A non-reflective screen is desperatley needed for this camera.

Did you not do any research or look at the specs before buying? There are cameras with both a hot shoe and a separate viewfinder as well as a screen like my G40.
