Another factor regarding sound is how much noise the camera makes. The canon 814 and 1014 xl-s are both fairly quiet as they were designed to record sound, however it can depend on the type of film you are shooting, the condition of the camera, etc.
Here are the links to the specifications of both the 814 and 1014 xl-s
They are both great cameras in my opinion. Both have many features such as interval timing and macro shooting that offer a lot of space to be creative.
I made the transition from digital to film about a year ago and trust me, when you see that first roll of film projected, you will not look back.
Hope this helps.

For sound, the 200/12 is the quieter of the two, but as they don't make sound film anymore, kind of a moot point. Invest in a quality sound recorder, and get a sync unit for them, and you'll do fine. (I run a NAGRA III myself)
