when you are editing raw images in the camera in the area where it says sensivity - 2.0 - + 2.0 i noticed that this makes the image darker or brighter, i always thaught that sensitivity has to do with iso settings

so is it actually the iso settinge you are changing ?

or adjusting the brightness of the scene ?

I've never done in-camera converting. However, from a book I have, the sensitivity adjustment is really an exposure adjustment (brightness). After you make your changes, press OK and scroll to "save as" and press OK again. That will leave the raw file alone and create a new jpg file with the changes. Does this help?

There's a ton of separate fires in SoCal burning right now, but at least the wind has finally died down some and that should help the fire fighters get a handle on them all. None near where we live this year, though there was one that started near one of the bottlenecks on my way to work (posted a picture of the fire taken Saturday night right after it started - see the boring picture topic). Having that interstate closed is a real problem because the work-arounds usually take an hour or longer (if there are any, depends on location), but so far it's been fine for us. There are many people at work who have been evacuated though.

The in-camera options are fairly limited. You can do a wholelot more to a raw file using any computer software (I happen to use Lightroom and Photoshop CS2, but there are a number of other good choices out there, including PPL). It's amazing how much latitude you really do have with a raw file.
