Default CoolPix 885 and Sound?

I am looking to buy a digicam. Comparing right now between NIkon CoolPix 885 and Sony DSC-S85. I like the smaller size/weight of 885, and longer warranty. But, i'd like sound! So, NOW i'm looking for the camera closest to the 885, just with sounds (can be any brand. Thanks!

i would lean towards the 885 for one reason- compactflash vs memorystick.
cf- up to 1GB available now
MS- up to 128MB available right now going up soon?
it is a memory system that only sony has designed and embraced. 85%+ of digicams run on CF cards.

sound is ok but it takes up room on the card. starting off with only 128MB add picture and sound and you have a full card in no time got to buy more. sony likes that. lexar has a mem stick that lights up now while transfer is going on to prevent data loss. now that innovation.
