Looks like that is dedicated to the Fuji instant pack film, possibly 4x5.

The FP-1 Professional is Fuji's high-end "instant" camera and uses 3-1/4 x 4-1/4 Polaroid-type film packs. Konica also sold a similar one, the Instant Press.

These are no longer made (used), and the link is to Yahoo-Japan's auction site (for sale). It seems the FP-1 goes for $300-500 depending on the condition and included accessories.

Now Fuji sells the "Cheki" instant cameras. They are toy-looking, but I hear the picture quality is decent.

Seems a bit like the old Polaroid metal bodied cameras for pack films, with a rangefinder. I think Konica briefly had an Instant Press that was similar. The NPC 190 was another one like this. Maybe Fuji use to make the Konica?

I love the FP-1, it's so much lighter and ergonomic than (say) the Mamiya Press with a Pola back. Konica Instant Press seems nicely engineered, you can see the connection with the Koni-Omega, but FP-1 costs far less and does a perfect job. No regrets.
