By the time we walked back up from the swim area and changed our clothes the videos were ready. Doesn't take long at all. If you happen to be leaving the area and one of the photographers is nearby (they walked back up with us) tell them you are interested in the video and you have to leave pretty quick to get back to your ship in time. They are very accomodating and will hurry up to get it ready for you. If you buy it, be sure when you get back to the ship that you have them hand check it and not x-ray it or it will erase your video. I asked the security screener and he was very nice and hand checked my video.
