The other major location is Bayfront Park, it's right along the bay and gets you good views of both runways (though photos of flights departing off runway 1L/R is harder now since a fence was installed):
It's located at the end of Millbrae Ave at Bayshore Highway, across the street from the Westin hotel and northwest of the Marriott hotel. There is a small free parking lot for the park at the northwest end of Marriott's parking lot.

I live in Concord (about 30 miles east of San Francisco) and when i go out to SFO, I usually stop by the fishing pier close to coyote Point regional Park. If you drive down towards bayfront park. Stay on the road (i think its South Airport Blvd.) keep going for about 2.1 miles and you will see the road make a sharp right. Once you reach that corner, you will see a small left turn lane leading to a small fishng outcove. That is where i get some of my arrival shots.

Having just come back from SFO, I can confirm that the northbound platform at San Bruno Caltrain station is excellent for 28 departures, 300mm or more recommended
Also, the SFO manager / senior employee was more than happy for me to take pictures of aircraft taking off, also departing 28, from the open viewpoint beside the escalators at the Terminal 2 AirTrain station
