Is it N(EYE)KON or NEEKON?

I've been watching Ron Reznick's DVDs. Good stuff, but I was a bit startled to hear him consistently pronounce "Nikon" with a long E vowel sound, as though it were Neekon. I've always assumed the English pronouinciation was Ni-kon, with a long I vowel sound, as in nitrogen.

Surely Ron is mistaken in his pronunciation?
