Predator

Visible crew/equipment: When the predator has been hit by Arnie, the camera and cable is reflected on his face. This also happens when Arnie is calling for Billy - you can see it reflected on his arm.

Visible crew/equipment: Dillon again, after having his (visible) arm shot off the Predator moves in and picks him up off the floor, at the bottom of the screen you can see the plank that is used to elevate him. (Only visible on the full-frame video).

Visible crew/equipment: During the final battle, shortly after Dutch runs by a plant that moves and catches the Predator's eye, watch as the Predator takes a few strides from rock to rock. When he jumps down off the last rock you can see a cable above his head helping him make his jump. This same cable can also be seen from a different shot about ten seconds later when Dutch runs into the Predator. (01:29:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Arnie says 'oh s***' and falls off the cliff, watch as the camera goes over the edge. If you look on the mountain, you can see a shadow of a black ball with a cable attached: this is the camera filming the shot which has been thrown off the cliff.

Visible crew/equipment: Watch when Arnie is sliding down the cliff: it shows a shot from his eyes looking down at his feet, and you can see the wooden platform he's sliding down.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mac and Dillon are hiding in the hole talking about how they are going to kill the predator, a boom mic is briefly visible at the top of the screen between them. (01:10:20)

Continuity mistake: After Mac has stabbed the scorpion that was on Dillon's back, he puts on a box and crushes it with his boot. You see a clear picture before he crushes it and then after he lifts his boot away. It is facing a completely different direction than before he stands on it. (00:32:25)

Trivia: Jesse Ventura could only carry enough blank ammunition to fire "Old Painless" for five seconds even though the props department had dramatically reduced the cyclic rate of the weapon to allow the camera to film the barrels rotating.

Question: This bugged me for years, when Billy said there is something in the trees to Dutch and in the next shot it shows the trees, is the Predator there, as in visible onscreen?

Chosen answer: Yes. The predator can be seen not in the immediate shot after, but the one a few seconds later as they are seen walking away.
