There are two main reasons why a lens like the Minitar 1 yields its supernatural saturated colours. First is the high-quality of the Russian glass used and second, the complex coating of the lens.
There are two main reasons why a lens like the Minitar 1 yields its supernatural saturated colours:
1. The high quality and type of Russian glass originating from the sands of the Baltic Sea, known for their unique quality.
2. The complex coating of the lens which was specially developed for the Minitar 1. Due to the wicked construction and calculation of the lens by the Russian hi-tech elite, the Minitar 1 yields the rich and slightly oversaturated that we Lomographers love so much.
