When Oliver is in dock being tried for pick-pocketing, after the judge says "Oh stand away" the camera becomes an Oliver POV shot. Just before Oliver totally collapses he looks up to the ceiling, (and therefore so does the camera) briefly showing the full studio rafters, complete with lights, and the set microphone, and part of the "set ceiling".
