Visible crew/equipment: There's a scene in which someone goes into a phone booth to make a call. As the phone booth door closes you can see a reflection of the cameraman.
Visible crew/equipment: After the main characters have entered the mall through the skylight, and have gone down the stairway in order to secure the mall, Scott Reineger and Ken Foree open the door into the corridor leading to the control room and boiler room. Whilst walking through said doorway, there is movement in the shadows in the top left. This has to be a crew member, as the only other zombie that is in this area is in the boiler room.
Visible crew/equipment: There is a scene where Michael Myers is hiding behind a hedge bush and Laurie and her friend go to investigate. Laurie turns around and talks and you see cigarette smoke go by the camera (John Carpenter admitted on the commentary track that he was smoking a little too close to the camera that day). (00:24:10)
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Brody approaches the group of teenagers on their smashed boats, the angle cuts to show Brody approaching seen as if from Cable Junction. At this point, there is a huge mistake. The teenagers' boats are clearly visible in the foreground, the kids have all completely vanished, and you can spot the cameraman standing on the boats quite clearly.
Visible crew/equipment: During the Houston burnout scene, the flamethrower team set a car on fire. You can briefly see a film crew member rushing up with water to put it out.
