I am in the market for a new camera. I currently have a Nikon Coolpix 4600 and am not happy whatsoever with the recovery time between pictures.
I take lots of action pictures in darkened catering halls, and it takes at least 10 - 15 seconds between shots to recover.

Is there any benchmark I can use that will let me know the cameras with the best recovery time in dark rooms?

If not, all advice is welcome.

I am currently contemplating the Canon S3 as it was the only camera I could find in Google that anyone mentioned a great recovery time. The price is right as I'd like to spend between $150 & $300.

Your thoughts?

Thanks so much!!!
