    (assuming a lense is attached to the camera) many of the camera bags are decided so that the lense is facing down.....is this the optimal way of storing the camera?.......is it okay to store it the other way around....say storing it with the lense facing up?......the reason with the lense facing down...is it because ppl are trying to avoid the sensor from collecting dust?.........from what you know...what is the best storage position for a camera?

    Depending on the bag, I'll have the camera stored on its side, grip-side up (Lowepro Computrekker AW), or with the lens pointing down because that's the easiest way to put the camera away or take it out (Crumpler $6M home).

    Given that dust isn't affected much by gravity, I wouldn't worry about the sensor dust issue. Dust happens.. clean your sensor every couple of months.

    I'd honestly concentrate more on what you do with the camera when it's not stored... ;-)
