Good article. Just an historical note-there are no such things as undeveloped negatives. Undeveloped film, yes. Negatives are what you obtain from developing film. Unprinted photographs are what you are probably referring to. Film is an old medium most people who read online news probably are not familiar with so no disrespect meant. I just felt the need to chime in due to the historical aspect of the article.
