The Fly6 is super easy to mount to a seat post and doesn't require any tools at all. It uses a velcro strap, which is similar to other rear lights I've had, and in the packaging there are other rubber mounts to adjust to the seat post angle on your bike, and even an "aero" seat post adapter for those without a round seat post. We'll see how this holds up long term and through a full wet Seattle winter.
Using the Fly6 also couldn't be easier. Holding the power button on for 1-2 seconds turns it on and recording starts immediately. Since there is no screen, it beeps at you indicating that A) its on, and B) 4 beeps means full battery, 3 is 3/4 etc. Simple enough that I can start riding, hold down the button and know that its running, and what the batter state is. Pressing the button on the other side of the unit cycles through the brightness settings of the light, and thoughtfully, there is a daytime setting where the bright light isn't on, but camera is rolling. I also like having a rechargeable light and not having to deal with batteries.
The camera also automatically splits the video into clips that are 10 minutes long, so its relatively easy to go back and see the interesting segments you recorded without having to scrub through an hour or two of footage. Further, it automatically overwrites the oldest footage, so you don't have to worry about managing the video on the card unless you have recorded something you want to keep.
I can't attest to the "incident feature" (thankfully), which has the camera automatically record and store (and not overwrite) 60 minutes of footage after the unit spends 5 seconds leaning more than 60 degrees from vertical. The idea being that if you are hit or crash, and your bike goes down, it will keep that footage.
I'm sorry, but the video quality is pretty crap. In regular daylight, I can barely read a vehicle license plat when its more than 30-40 feet away. (which kind of defeats the whole purpose right?) You can easily pick out make/model and color of cars, but don't count on being able to read the plates. I attached two still screen grabs from a video I took this morning. The first one shows the clearest image of the license plate of the car that veered into the bike lane in still image 2.
AVI files (seriously?) On a Mac, you can't play these natively, so you have to jump through three hoops to view, convert, and edit the files. How about a simple native file format that I can import directly into iMovie, and edit down from there? Honestly, I would rather be out riding my bike, than managing video conversion codex and learning how to batch convert 18, 10 minute long clips from a 3 hour ride into something I can edit in iMovie. For example, 1 10 minute long clip took 2.5 minutes to convert using Handbrake on a quad core i7 retina iMac... Why can't I just copy the file over and play it? For reference the original 10 minute clips are around 500MB each.
Field of view. Not a huge deal but I would rather the video be wider angle than it is, so I can capture more the scene (even if its fish eye distorted). People are plenty used to seeing warped gopro footage now, and the wider angle would be more helpful for what the light/camera is intended to be used for.
Glad they improved mountings and memory card capacity whilst retaining the ease of use and functionality.
The buttons are nice and tactile , the audio cues for changing modes are great. And battery life has been great for 6 plus hour rides .
It fits on my bikes fine but I guess if you have very little post that may be an issue.
I was hit and run by a texting driver . ER bills were over 30 grand. Since then I do t ride without one of these if I can avoid it.
As far as the issue of using this with a rear saddle bag goes, I've had no issues attaching the light below the bag directly under the seatpost clamp (YMMV depending on your seat height and frame design). In the camera's location in the photos, the camera has a clear view out the back with nothing obscuring the video.
The video resolution is poor. License plate numbers border on the impossible to read. When the product is upgraded to 1080p then, I think, license plates will become readable.
Video file size is huge and in an old format, AVI.
The battery life is mediocre. And this is with only the camera active, no light.
PROs: The mounting hardware works fine.
Again, everything works but only in a mediocre fashion.
