Your example (standing 12 ft from a 40 ft long wall) means you need a lens with a 120deg field of view. That's something like a 10mm (FF equiv) lens on a full frame camera.

Here's an alternate suggestion: Buy a point & shoot that does panoramas. The Sony point & shoots have a built-in "Sweep Panorama " mode.
