To achieve a tone and quality that was not only true to the story, but reflected the period in which it is set, Spielberg once again collaborated with cinematographer Janusz Kamiński, saying, "Early on, we both knew that we did not want this to look like a Technicolor extravaganza about World War II, but more like color newsreel footage from the 1940s, which is very desaturated and low-tech." Kamiński had the protective coating stripped from the camera lenses, making them closer to those used in the 1940s. .He explains that "without the protective coating, the light goes in and starts bouncing around, which makes it slightly more diffused and a bit softer without being out of focus."^ Anyone who feels the need to deny that they're a fool without being prompted has got to be the biggest fool around.

The cinematographer completed the overall effect by putting the negative through bleach bypass, a process that reduces brightness and color saturation. .The shutter timing was set to 90 or 45 degrees for many of the battle sequences, as opposed to the standard of 180 degree timing.^ When I see the film 14 times, maybe I will finally figure out how many paratroopers were in this battle.
