The Canon 514XL-S (introduced in 1976) is a compact sound super 8 movie camera and was Canon's first sound camera. It became a long-selling hit because of the sophisticated sound system which has manual and automatic audio level controls. Unfortunately sound cartridges aren't available anymore, but you can still use this camera to record sound externally because it's more quiet than non-sound cameras.

Hi I have a opportunity to get a Canon 514 XL-S camera. This is a sound camera and need sound super-8 film cartridge. As we know, super-8 sound film cartridges are no longer in production and not available. So, my question is Can I use silent Kodak Super-8 films now available in market in the sound camera?
