I setup a test this morning with the Burke And James 5x7 camera and the 4x5 film back mounted and that Repromaster F9 213mm process lens I purchased for $10 a little while back (see <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/greggobst/15905915887/">www.flickr.com/photos/greggobst/15905915887/</a>). I wanted to see what sort of look I could get out of the lens so I setup a set of white roses in a vase and using a lens cap as a shutter I created this image. The exposure was four seconds at F32 with about 10 degrees of forward tilt on the front standard to keep all layers of the group of flowers in even focus. I used Arista EDU Ultra 200 film (Rebranded Fomapan 200) rated at ISO 160. I lit the scene with four fluorescent 80 watt bulbs inside a 28" Westcott Apollo softbox placed camera left and had a 30" white reflector bouncing light back onto the subject from camera right. The development was in Rodinal 1:50 for 7 minutes @ 20 degrees Celsius using a Beseler 8x10 print drum placed on Unicolor Uniroller 352 auto-reversing rotary base.
These process lenses were meant to be used by the printing industry in 1:1 color separation applications and never meant to be used in traditional photography but as you can see they are pretty sharp performers.
