I use a 283 and a press photographers bounce card. I use a file card ( does anyone use these for filing anymore?) and bend it at a 45. I then rubber band it on the end of the 283 right at the 45 degree crease.
If there is a ceiling some bounces off the ceiling, but a big chunk bounces off the white card. Pretty small and cheap.
I found with mine that if I point the flash head straight up, some light bounces off the card and some goes straight up and bounces of the ceiling.

The scans I posted earlier are not great as they were quickly done to give the couple an idea of what they were going to get. I am pleased with the actual prints to the point where I didn't mind showing them to my father - a wedding photographer from the early 1960s to the mid 1990s!!
For anyone who wants to know the technical details:
Camera: Mamiya RB67 Pro-SD
Lens: 90mm K/L
Film: Fuji NPS 160 rated at EI 125
Flash: Vivitar 285 with flash bounce adaptor as is the subject of this thread
Exposure: Manual, mainly f11 1/125 with fill flash set to whatever colour automatic setting gave a two stop under-exposure (obviously not for indoor shots).
