Mounting vertical

Noob question, and 'perhaps' in the wrong section, but I was curious:

I'm looking to pick up the black edition to use for recording paintball games, and at first I was going to get a Contour+2 because they're so low profile, but the Hero 3 vid quality is unbeatable....

My question is this: Can I mount this camera vertically yet change the lens angle so that it records horizontally?

Does that make sense? I want to mount it vertically on the side of my mask to reduce it sticking out, yet still want horizontally recorded video. Is this impossible or am I a dummy?

Any input is appreciated, thanks in advance!

The GoPro records in landscape, obviously, either the right way up or upside down. There is not a setting for changing the orientation any other way - so if you mount it vertically the recorded video will also be in a portrait viewpoint, and will not be straight.
