How do you pronounce Nikon?
Oct 4, 2011

. . . I'm over sixty and throughout most if not all of my adult life I always heard it said with a long i sound. Phonetically, you might spell it Nye-kon I suppose. I was just watching a video in the DPR preview of the Olympus E-PM1 and heard something I've never heard before, not even from a Brit. He said Nikon with a short i pronunciation which phonetically would probably be spelled Nickon. How do the Japanese say Nikon - anyone know?
