how to pronounce “Nikon”

Nothing interesting about this commercial except how they pronounce “Nikon” at the 26 second mark. Apparently it’s pronounced “nick-ON”, not “NIGH-con”. Yea, it shocked me too! I will try to adopt this proper pronunciation.

It’s an incredible resource that we’re always amazed to experience. Though I feel obligated to warn patrons planning a visit to Sting Ray Bay. Be sure to read my […]
