    I suspect that it varies by country. In the Nikon TV advertisements in the UK, it is pronounced Nick... on.

    You pronounce it differently when you're in the USA? How do you say it here?

    Thanks for the insight!

    Paul Simon said "nye-kon". That's enough for me.

    I always loved that song but it's kind of sad now since there is no more Kodachrome.

    Yes, I do.

    When I am in US, (I live here in Florida, US) I say "NaiKon" like everybody says.
    If I am speaking to Japanese folks, I say "KneeCon" but "ee" is actually NOT a long "e" as in "knee"... but short "e" as in "each"

    I pretty much pronounce all Japanese names and words as most Americans do. Not only does it prevent me from needing to explain/repeat every time, it's actually easier to say it in middle of English sentences. I am not a linguist so I cannot explain why but it's true.

    Strangely enough, I also pronounce my own name differently. Again, it's easier for me to say it and easier for people to hear it.
