    I searched for Bronica on Forvo. Sadly, no one says it at all.

    It's Bu (as in _Bu_s), Ro (as in _Ro_man), Ni (as in _Nei_ther), Ka (as in _Cu_t)

    Pronounce BuRoNiKa like that, two letters at a time as one sound, and without any accent or emphasis anywhere and you'll get it very close.

    As for toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe: I say too-may-toe. And then there those who say tuh-may-duh.

    And I say mah-mee'-ya. It's hard to say it correctly without it sounding like mommy-yuh. Which sounds weird. "I have a mommy-yuh." "This is my mommy-yuh."
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    "Toe-may-toe, Toe-mah-toe? ", let's call the whole thing off

    I say Bronica as BRAH-nih-kuh, that is, rhyming with Hanukkah.

    And then there's yuh-SHEE-kuh.

    Calling my FED-2 cameras lay-kuhs would actually be a neat play on words, given the Soviet space monkey.

    In England that would be "Mummy-yuh".

    I don't think there's any "probably" about it.
