Visible crew/equipment: In the drive-in shootout scene, the camera and crew are visible in the rear view mirror in the cab of the white Dodge pickup fleeing De Niro and Kilmer.

Visible crew/equipment: When Neil is sneaking up at Van Zant's house, you can see both Neil's and the camera man's reflection in the glass windows on the house.

Visible crew/equipment: When Vincent Hanna decides Neil is already gone, he heads to his hotel room. He enters the room and walks out onto the balcony. The shot of him approaching the balcony and opening the sliding door is shown from outside, on the balcony itself, and the cameraman (wearing a white shirt) and camera are visible reflected on the left side of the sliding glass door. It is more evident as the shot progresses, because the cameraman shifts position and the reflection moves further to the left, becoming larger. (02:21:54)

Trivia: Just after the scene when Waingro escapes being killed, there's a shot of De Niro looking at the sea through the glass with his left arm touching a window frame, and his automatic gun on a little table. This shot is inspired by the picture "Pacific" (1967) made by the Canadian artist Alex Colville.
