Not having seen one before, I bought this online thinking it was just an odd early Kodak. As soon as I saw it I realized that it HAD to have been made for Kodak by Graflex. All the hardware and operating principles are classic Graflex; some of the hardware even looks as though it would interchange with parts on my early Graflexes.

Mckeown's says it was made from '09 through '13, so Graflex was a part of Kodak at the time. I guess Kodak wanted a FP camera of their own, although it seems odd they did not just let Graflex market it.

Anyone know more about this camera?

Only that they are hard to find and valued.

Yes it was made in the Folmer-Century Division of Kodak and there are a few patents that show this camera, and there are certainly a lot of similarites to the Graflex 1A and 3A. More than a few of these parts show up on a Speed Graphic.
