Default first cam, Canon A70 or sony DSC P72?

Help!
I am at a dead even lock between these two cameras. I'm looking for a camera that offers a great movie mode with sound as well as great still picture quality. I know that the sony has the new vx unlimited movie mode, but I'm not sure how important this is to me since I will mostly be shooting clips under 30 seconds. If I get the canon, I'm assuming I can just shoot 30 seconds, then stop and shoot another 30 seconds, etc. etc.

Do both have the ability to have a cable connection to a TV to watch a slide show? I know the sony does, but not sure on the canon.

I do have a mac and it appears the canon has more mac native software. I also like the option to add on different lenses to the canon and don't know if the sony has this option.

I am planning on buying a faster charger, a 128mb card, and some NIMH batteries regardless of which one I get.

So what are your recommendations! Lets hear em!

Sony DSC P72 or Canon A70??????

Any help would be appreciated!

I have quite a few replies on my thread concerning best cam request running in Q&A. I am also looking at both cams in addition to A80 and LC33, LC43.
