Feature Request: set video orientation

I love to attach my session to my dlsr but when I turn my camera sideways the video  goes with it 

 

I know if I mount it upside down it's smart enough to flip the video so let's take it to the next step and figure out a way to tell the camera what "north" is so when it's on its side the video flips accordingly .....for both the session and hero 5

For those occasions simply Place the session in the cage sideways, job done.  Smiley Tongue

You can add an extension piece like a a 3-Way Pivot Arm http://shop.gopro.com/mounts/grab-bag/AGBAG-002.html or maybe use the Ball Joint Buckle? http://shop.gopro.com/mounts/ball-joint-buckle/ABJQR-001.html
