*edit: I returned the phone to AT&T and got a different one. The new phone has the exact same problem, so it's definitely a bug of some kind. Any video recorded on 9x16 60fps has this flicker indoors. I've posted an example of the flicker below. My Note 20 and my brothers normal S22 do not flicker like this using the same settings in the same light condition, so it's definitely not just the lights.

The camera on my new S22 ultra flickers really bad when I set the framerate higher than 30fps. It happens with any indoor lighting. I understand cameras and LED lights do not get along well, but my note 20 could capture video just fine 1080p@60fps without any image flickering under the same lighting conditions.

The camera is pretty much unusable in its current state. I really hope Samsung engineers have a software update incoming to fix this issue. It's completely unacceptable for a flagship phone to have such a glaring issue at launch. Did Samsung not test the camera indoors?

After additional testing I have determined this flickering issue is also happening under cloudy outdoor daylight conditions.

This is without any flash and no artificial lights, just cloudy outdoor lighting.

So it's definitely not related to indoor lighting refresh.
