Great LIVE coverage. Glad it wasn't tape-delay! The overhead tracking camera was great. Was really too bad we didn't get that in Beijing. I assume that most of this was the host feed augmented by NBC's on-site cameras?
I was in Rome last month, and looking at the trees around the complex reminds me of the scenery of the city. The reflections from the outdoor pool during daytime must have made shooting the races very tricky.
I have a recording of the Beijing Olympic swimming, and I can tell that the overhead camera was definitely moving. Maybe it didn't cover the full length, but it certainly did move from the middle to the finish as it remained looking down vertically at the swimmers. You can tell it's moving along the length, as opposed to simply turning left and right, by watching the vertical wall at the end of the pool.
