yes, why not? Just that it will take lots of shots. Do you have a wide angle adapter for your G9? It will redue the number of shots. You can also mount a Nikon FC-E9 fisheye converter on G9 and use Nodal Ninja 180.

at 35mm, you need 50 shots for a spherical pano!

I believe Panoweaver is a popular one (pricy but I can offer you a nice discount). You could do 2 around but better with 3 around with this lens.

Here's a 2 shot panorama I did using this lens.

The FC-E9 lens is a huge fisheye lens. I believe it provides for 183 degree FOV so 2 shot panoramas are possible but you have to be spot on with the rotational point and this is where NN180 comes into play. Once you set it up you're good to go but still recommended to do 3 shots around for greater overlap between images.

These two programs seem to be the popular choice for both amateurs and pros.

Looks like the canon wc-dc58b is x.75 converter so your G9 would be 35mmx.75=26mm so maybe about 30 around for full cylindrical.
Not sure how well PTGui will work with this canon wc-dc58b. You might need to put in the values manually.

What will be the program easier to learn?
Do you know where I can get a couple of manuals PTGUI and pano2vr?
If you recommend a program easier, please let me no where I can also get the manuals.

Thanks Bill.

It's always best to try before you buy. Most software vendors offer free trail's. Also look to their website for manuals and support.

I really like using AutoPano Pro for my projects. I haven't had anything other than some homogenous sky that throws it's automatic alignment. It's picked up my G9 with or without a Raynox wide adapter without a problem
