Continuity mistake: In episode "The good, the Bad and the Dominatrix" When Sara takes the photos of Lady Heather's neck bruising you see 2 distinct ligature marks. When Brass serves her with the search warrant you can see only the remnants of one ligature mark then when she is in Brass' office later she again has 2 ligature marks.
Continuity mistake: Series 7 - Part 1: When Sara and Warrick are at the table discussing the case, Sara's box containing her veggie sandwich changes position depending on whether the camera is looking at her or Warrick. (It moves from directly in front of Sara, and then several inches to her right toward the edge of the table).
Other mistake: In episode "The Good, the Bad and the Dominatrix"When the son goes to the bank he tells the manager that there was a million dollars in that account last week, there was 843,508.00 taken out leaving a balance of 31,053.86. That only adds up to 874,561.86. Not a million dollars. He doesn't say close to a million dollars He says there was a million dollars in that account.
Continuity mistake: Outside the brothel, there is an orange post next to the old man's trailer. Suddenly, it is gone in the second scene where the old man is approaching. In the third scene there is one again, but this time it is an orange cone instead of an orange post.
Visible crew/equipment: The prostitutes take turns telling their stories to Captain Brass in their dressing room. But as the long-haired brunette lady tells her story from a distance, you can see a cameraman in the mirror behind her waiting for his turn to film. When she is shown close up, you can see him closer in the mirror, filming.
Continuity mistake: When the woman first falls through the glass, she obviously breaks it all, toward the bottom of the window. Then her position changes and there is cracked glass in place. We then see several more shots of the dead woman, none of which have matching blood spatter or position of her body.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Hodges and Greg find the seafood they were hunting for in the "Pleasure Providers'" stations or whatnot, Hodges collects a sample of the shrimp by cutting off a little piece. He picks it up with his fingers. In the very next frame, the shrimp piece is in tweezers. Lightning speed.
Factual error: In the scene where Hodges describes the camera glass to Grissom, he states that camera lenses are curved on one side and flat on the other for a higher refractive index. The refractive index is a property of the glass and has nothing to do with its shape. Also lenses used in cameras can have any shape to them, with even a moderately good lens in a compact camera being made of several pieces of glass with few flat surfaces. This is not modern technology in camera lenses, they have been made like this for decades. Narrowing it down to a non-compact camera by Nikon, Canon or Leica is also wrong, as all manufacturers use these techniques.
Other mistake: When CSI Brown is with the mother of the alleged victim, he shows her a picture of the deceased and asks if she knows her. The name on the picture is the one the mother gives (Simone Molinez). How would the correct name be in the picture if the victim had yet to be identified?
Revealing mistake: Grissom and Brass enter the darkened apt. and Grissom spots another doll figurine on the book shelf as Brass takes notice of the dead guy on the bathroom floor. As Grissom comments on this being yet another 'miniature killer' scene, the cam flips to a shot of Dead Guy and he wiggles just slightly, even though he's supposed to be dead.
