By Magic Actions - Thursday, September 22, 2022. First, let's understand why artificial lighting and screens can flicker when you're shooting a video. Different countries use power supplies with different frequencies, for example, the United States, Canada, and Mexico use 60Hz power supplies, while Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America use 50Hz power supplies.
When you are shooting video at 30 or 60 frames per second and your lights or screens are connected to a 60Hz power supply, you won't notice the flickering effect because the flickering is synchronized with the frames.
If artificial lights or screens are connected to a 50Hz power supply and you're shooting video at 30fps or 60fps, the result will be a terrible flickering effect in your videos. But don't worry, you can fix it with just one setting.
Starting with iOS 14.2 or later, Apple provides users with the ability to select PAL formats, which let you shoots videos at 25 frames per second and eliminates flickering when the lights or screens are connected to a 50Hz power supply.
Follow these steps to record your video in a PAL format:
1. Open the Settings app and go to Camera.
2. In the Camera app, select Record Video.
3. At the end of the screen, enable Show PAL Formats.
4. Select 1080p HD at 25 fps (PAL) or 4K at 25fps (PAL) from the list of available formats.
Now, you can launch your Camera app and start recording high-quality videos in artificial light without flickering.
