Superstar - S4-E17

Visible crew/equipment: After Tara is found in the Janitor's closet and brought back to her room as Willow & Buffy come in, there is a mirror to the left of the door. It has a scarf draped over it to prevent it from reflecting things it shouldn't, but the bottom right corner is still exposed and in it you can see glimpses of the crew moving around behind the camera.

Where The Wild Things Are - S4-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander and Anya pull over in the ice-cream van, the front windscreen is very reflective. To avoid reflecting the camera crew, a giant screen was put in front of the ice-cream van - which, ironically, is reflected in the windscreen. It isn't a reflection of another vehicle parked in front of them as the thing that is reflected is a curved shape.
