I took this with an HV20.
Take a board, wrap and staple some felt around it (fleece will also do). Screw some boards to the bottom to raise it up a bit (so the picture frame doesn't bump the tripod head), affix the wood to your camera plate.
Take a plastic picture frame, cut off the wrap around part (the part that holds the picture in - you want just a single piece), throw a bean bag on top - this will hold your camera and you can change orientation easily.
How smooth can you push or pull?
