It, along with the Nikon S6100 will still make to the US market as planned according to Nikon USA. "The Nikon COOLPIX S4100 and S6100 cameras are available in the Americas. As recently reported by Nikon Corporation, sales of these products are being discontinued in some markets however availability of these products in the Americas will not be impacted," reads a statement from the company.
