    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.

    For outside use where there are no convenient ceilings, I angle the flash head forward a bit and that sends a little bit more light towards the subject.

    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).
