Crew or equipment visible 

When McNulty confronts Judge Phelan at the courthouse about him speaking to the media. In the background, an elevator opens and two men possibly not realizing filming is taking place enter the shot, freeze, stare at the camera, put their hands up to acknowledge the accident, and hurry out of the shot.

Factual errors 

Kima uses a "cannon" - a rather long, cheap, dark 500mm f8.0 telephoto lens - to photograph suspects from a rooftop. It is bad photographic practice to freehand it instead of using a tripod. Later, the images she supposedly took are shown, but using that low-sensitivity colour film, they would have turned out a lot more blurry because of the long exposure times necessary.

Revealing mistakes 

When the murdered Gant is shown in the morgue, you can see his eyelids move when pictures are taken. He pushes his eyelids harder together when the flashes of the pictures appear.
