I recently purchased Gopro hero 6. There few things which is very irritating for me.
1) Display flickers in low light if I use NTSC video mode and if I change it to PAL then it changes the behaviour to normal. Does this a manufacturing defect or defect in firmware?
2) In Photo mode, I am seeing two black vertical bars on left and right notch in preview. In Video it is not coming. Attached screenshot for this issue.

That will be the 4:3 Aspect ratio you are seeing. If GoPro stretches the image you will start to lose the top and bottom, nothing new. Check out your video mode and look at the bottom of hte screen what do you see?

As far as the flickering, this has nothing to do with the camera. Different areas use different frequencies and if your camera is set to the wrong region, it will pick up the flickering the frequency creates. North America, and a few other countries use NTSC (60Hz) while UK, Africa, Australia, most of Asia and Russia use PAL (50Hz).
