What is the difference between a Canon 814XL-S, 814 Autozoom and 814XL Electronic, besides sound capabilities. Is it worth paying extra for the XL-s or should I just go with the Electronic?

thanks
Jason J

Presumably you're aware that sound cartridges were discontinued about ten years ago, so you can just ignore the sound spec. Google is your friend, as usual.

The Canon 814 XLS in one of your top of line latest models.It can take a sound cart,but like the previous guy said,they aren't available anymore unless you want to take a chance on old stock on ebay.Even though mag stripe sound is dead,this camera is the one of choice imo if you can afford it.It has about every feature you could want,very sharp glass and is very quiet for a super 8 camera.The 814 E has similar features,but can only take a silent cart.Very nice camera too,loaded with toys as well.The 814 AZ,too is very nice,I have one of those,makes nice images,sharp glass,but it's the oldest of the three and doesn't do slow motion like the other cameras.

This link is for all the cameras Canon produced:

You can read the specifications for each model.

Hope this helps.

It's not that simple however because sound super-8 cameras were basically the final generation of super-8 cameras that ever made, and technically the least old super-8 cameras as well. In some instances, the sound cameras represent the very best in super-8 camera products available, but in some other instances the super-8 camera manufacturers were trying to figure out what options they could take out of the sound super-8 cameras but still keep the consumer happy with the price and filming options their super-8 sound cameras provided.
