Nikon Coolpix S4100 cancelled following Japan earthquake

Nikon blames earthquake for camera canning

Camera canned due to parts shortages

Nikon has confirmed it is to cease sales of the Nikon Coolpix S4100 citing parts shortages following the recent Japanese earthquake as the cause of the pocket snappers canning.

Announced via an official statement on the company’s native Japan website Nikon has revealed the Nikon Coolpix S4100 “will be cancelled”. It is currently unknown weather or not Nikon intends to reinstate the S4100 when parts become more readily available.

A rough translation of the statement revealed Nikon had blamed the discontinuation of the Coolpix S4100 on “problem with parts procurement” following “the effects of the earthquake that occurred on March 11.”

Believed to be the first camera to be affected by the devastating force majeure effects, the Nikon Coolpix S4100 was to sport a 14-megapixel sensor with a 5x optical zoom sporting wide-angle 26mm NIKKOR lens.
