In your bag No: 658, Csaba Brindza
Wow, what a crazy few days. We have been from Europe to South America, through the states and now we are back in eastern Europe. Today we have a bag from Hungary, and a very interesting bag it is too. Check it out.

My name is Csaba Brindza from Budapest, Hungary. I’m a regular reader of the blog and now decided to share my gear.

I like shooting a lot of things including very different subjects.

Photographing music and photographing during my travelings are the closest to my heart for sure.

I’m mostly shooting with a digital body and all analog manual lenses. I’ve got several analog cameras (Mamiya M645, Nikon FM2, Lomos etc), but nowadays this is my daily setup:

Lowepro Stealth Reporter D300 AW: It’s too big, looking for a replacement in the near future.

Canon 5DII – I like this camera as it gave me so much freedom with replacing the focusing screen. This way I can precisely focus with analog lenses and not restricted by the AF system. Raw files are superb.

Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm 1.4 (CY mount): It is my main lens with awesome colours. I prefer its drawing, bokeh and the small size.

Mamiya 80mm 2.8: It’s from my Mamiya M645 gear used with a Mamiya Eos adapter. Colours are muted, but i really like its characteristics.

Mamiya 135mm 3.5: Another M645 lens, the focal length is too long for my liking, I rarely use this one, but it makes nice pictures.
