    The most commonly show video of the WTC7 collapse is zoomed in on the upper visible portion. This gives the misleading impression that it's quite a wide, squat building. Really it was relatively tall and slender. Here I've overlaid the collapse video with a later segment in the same video with a wide angle view of the whole street. (the camera has hardly moved, so they line up very well.) It gives a much better sense of the scale of the event.

    This was shot from the same location as the tight shot which shows the penthouse collapse but is badly overexposed.

    This is overexposed, too. Is this from a different camera, or is the usual shot we see a cropped version of this?

    It's the same video. The street scene is from one minute after the collapse. See:
