    I recall reading somewhere years ago that Ilford's SFX200 was based on a traffic surveillance film.

    Interesting thread. I have two bulk rolls of "Kodak Traffic Control Film Color S0-077" that I got very cheap. I understand the SO indicates a special order film. The base is definitely thicker than usual.

    These rolls both expired in 2001 and Kodak's web site contains no trace of it, as far as I can tell. I developed my first test roll at home in B&W just for kicks. Edge markings indicate "K'ODAK SO077 1454-815-02". Anyone ever run into this stuff?

    Just done a search and came across this reference to KODAK SO077 1454-815-02.

    I picked up a few bulk rolls from a guy in Canada via Ebay a couple of months ago. I ran a 120 or so frames through the camera and finally got round to processing them tonight after two months sitting in the freezer. I've no idea if it is negative or transparency film so I cooked it with some EPP100 I've got in a Tetenol 3 bath kit. Came out very dark compared to the EPP100 and the base layer is orange as opposed to clear like the EPP100. I'm guessing from this that it's a negative film and either underexposed or underdeveloped due to the cross process effect.

    Any suggestions/advice would be gratefully received

    C41 exposed normally will often look underexposed when developed in e6 chems. I'd soup some in c41 chems before adjusting your EI.

    Here's a low res (300dpi) scan of one of the frames. This is about as good as I can pull off the film with the scanning software. I've absolutely no hope of projecting any of the frames and won't know if I can print anything as my enlarger doesn't arrive until the weekend (don't tell the wife she doesn't know I've got it yet!! )

    Surprisingly the colour balance and saturation don't look too bad considering. If I can get the EI right it might turn out to be a decent slide film!!
