Disambiguation: Graflex means ...


When a court had ordered that Kodak had to sell its Folmer & Schwing division no buyers appeared. A new company was founded which was named Folmer Graflex Corporation in 1928. In 1945 it was renamed to Graflex Inc. . From the days of depression of the 1930s to 1957 the company grew from 100 to 760 employees. It made successfully sophisticated SLRs and press cameras as well as TLRs and several 35mm cameras, and some special-purpose cameras, e.g. for air reconnaissance.
