Strange problem with S21 camera?

I have a Galaxy S21 5G, which is brand new. It has all the latest firmware and updates.

When using the camera to take pictures in low light, I am getting vertical lines showing sometimes. These also show in the actual picture which has just been taken.

Please see attached video showing this.

Has anyone else had this issue at all? 

I have deleted the camera cache, didn't work. I have even factory reset and this too did not fix the problem.

It's because of light flicker. LEDs etc appear to the human brain to be constantly emitting light when in fact the light is pulsating.
Shooting in such an environment makes it noticeable because of the film rate. See this http://led-obzor.com/home-led-bulbs/why-led-lamp-blinks

Okay thank you for clearing that up.
Very strange that this does not happen when using another camera apps like instagram or whatsapp in the same room.
