Re: Problem with light at night, flicker on the video,why this ???

Your Hero5 was probably in PAL.

Other ways to reduce flickering is to change the shutter speed in Protune. This doesn't always work and will require you to adjust the ISO as well. The Hero6 has better low light performance so the shutter might not always be the same as the Hero5 in the same situations. Switching to PAL should help in your situation.
