I was without a paramender for a while when I owned a C330s. I measured the distance you had to move the taking lens to place it where the viewing lens was. Then I cut a block of wood the right length. To use it, I would extend the column on my tripod until the block fit under the camera. I had to fool around for a while until I got the length right, but it worked fine once I did. Even with the tilt you mention, trial and error should get you the right length.
