Dash lights during starting Versa

Hello,

New to the forum and new owner of a nissan versa hatchback. I just had
a general question to know if the below operation is normal.
With the lights in the off position, I notice when I turn the key on the dashboard lights will turn on and when I crank to start they will flash off and back on. Havent really noticed this in previous cars and just wonder if this is normal?. Dont seem to be any issues starting or anything. Just wanted to
know if this occurs with other versa owners?.

Thanks

its normal mine do the same thing cause when you start it the starter draws a lot of amps to crank it over so it shuts off everything elese so the starter can have more power to start
