Visible crew/equipment: Very early on in the movie, Neville is happily driving around the deserted streets. Half way through this scene the camera shows us Neville's view out the front windscreen of the car. Ahead, moving cars can be seen crossing the intersection, obviously where the streets hadn't been blocked off for the filming of the movie.
Other mistake: In the opening scene where Charlton Heston drives into a Deserted Los Angeles, he drives past at least 3 people walking down the sidewalk. The first person he passes is quite visibly holding up the traffic for the shooting. Another can be seen on the left of the screen when Heston puts the tape on. And one more can be seen in the wide shot of the street. Other than this, the film makers did a great of making LA look deserted.
