I am frustrated by the my Heinrich Weikamp RSU. It works fine in low light but anything brighter than a dim room and it refuses to fire the strobe. I have tried cutting an old film container to enclose the RSU but that doesn't improve the situation and wrapping it in a thick felt to cut down the ambient light but still no firing in average light conditions Any pointers or tips. I have attached to a Sea and Sea DS60.

Hello Belizediversity,

Do you have solved your "problem" with the RSU?

I use the HW RSUs in caves, and they struggle even in complete darkness when there are too many bright torches. I have never succeeded with them in the ocean during the day. Hedwig's triggerfish work great in ambient light, you could try one of those instead.
