    Maybe we could make our own direct positive paper and use it in view cameras.

    I'd give up photography in the sense of trying (and usually failing!) to produce results with any kind of aesthetic or artistic merit, but would probably stump up for a basic d%l camera for family events, holidays, etc.. However, I have such a huge stock of slides and negs that I could still have a lot of fun with, even if I had to go down the scanning route (though you only mention stopping film production, not paper!)

    I wouldn't be able to give up photography. I'm in love with photography, not a particular medium.

    No way I'd give up photography. I'd rather use digital and I'd probably try my luck with "alternative processes" like wet plate and cyanotypes that can be done with basic chemicals at home. But since film won't vanish from one day to the next, I'd rather spend all my savings on enough film and paper to last me a few years. Developer and fixer can easily be made, so that's not a problem, but building my own coating machine and making film is way beyond my engineering skills.
