Digital negatives should last indefinitely if guarded properly. Where 35mm negatives can fade, shift color and get scratched over long periods digital images remain perfect. If archived properly and transferred to more current media every few decades people centuries from now should be able to see them as perfectly as the day they were taken.

I fear the vast majority will be lost though.
