What the hell are you talking about? American pronunciation of both Canon and Nikon gives emphasis to the first syllable.

CANuhn or CAnuhn - which I think the difference there is what you're getting at - and NIGHkahn

Talking about exactly what your example backs up ...and you don't even know it

Ca nuhn and Ni kon vs Can on and Nik on ...you also missed the other examples.
