A few cheap accessories to make the Canon Vixia HF R800 much more powerful

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a popular entry level camcorder among rookie videographers.

While it does support an external microphone input (albeit unpowered) it does not, unfortunately, come with any cold (accessory) shoes on the camera body.

With an adhesive cold shoe and a few more rigging accessories, you can change that and make the camcorder a lot more powerful and versatile.
