Visible crew/equipment: At one point Clint Eastwood is out in the woods practising his shooting with his new .44 auto-mag pistol. While he's doing this, a car pulls up and a black male begins to get out with a shotgun. (We later learn that this is his partner). As the man with the shotgun is opening his door, if you look at the reflection in the car window, you can clearly see the reflection of a man with a camera and another man standing next to him.
Visible crew/equipment: This is the number one mistake of all time. When the sheriff is chasing the Bandit, they both drive into the stunt show and the Bandit is heading right for a burning wall. First, you see an inside shot then the shot changes to catch all the action, on the second shot of the Trans Am crashing through the wall you can see a Panavision camera [ yes it is that clear to even tell what kind of camera it is.] set up in the back of the car filming those shots.
