Also, what other things would you say easily identifies a film as being shot by Kaminski, other than his name being in the credits. Thank you!

To really get the Kaminski look you'll have to dissect his lighting style per movie and nail that first!
Also each filter gives a different look, a Schneider will differ from a Tiffen. I prefer Tiffens for that reason, but again it's a personal preference.
Why try to replicate someone else's style? Why not find your own.

I too an a big fan and admirer of his work, but there is a difference between films, ya know? Diving Bell and the Butterfly looks substantially different from say, A.I. and Minority Report differs from Munich.
I would again, start by dissecting his lighting (where the light is coming from) first, as that'll be the best thing to replicate/assimilate, then moving into certain camera motions and the like, framings, lenses, etc, and then filtration to taste.
Give a try to a Tiffen Pro Mist, or a Black Pro Mist, but I would say nothing really replicates a Schnider.
