Let us dive a little deeper to better understand this phenomenon. So, LEDs work Evolved electricity AC, and a cycle, i.e. 1Hz, when an electron moves in and out and the bulb closes twice. Thus, alternating current typically operates at 50Hz worldwide (60Hz in the United States), which means that an LED bulb goes off about 100 to 120 times. And it’s so fast that people can’t see it with their naked eyes. However, the camera clicks a picture of the light turning on and off during cycling, thus showing the light flickering on the camera.
