You seem interested in vintage cameras. Am I right?

Well for a while when I had my own darkroom and developed and printed my own stuff I had quite a few vintage cameras ranging from a minox up to a 5x7 large format.

I read an article in one website and it said that vintage cameras were better than the modern digital kinds nowadays.

Depends on the camera and scanning equipment, as well as what your goal is in the end. It also depends on which "modern digital" one sare being compared. For example a 4x5 view camera with a high grade lens and crisp film can easily be drum scanned well beyond 100 megapixel (assuming the lens and film can even resolve details to that point, which isn't that difficult with 4x5 sized film versus 35mm). 

Likewise depending on the purpose digital can produce the same or better depending on the quality of the lens and other aspects. 

Though I will say, the manual usage of *some* vintage cameras were superior in quality of parts like the optical viewfinder being much larger or brighter and manual focusing system than most cameras now days. A Canon F1 was quite nice to use for 35mm, but so was my Hasselblad 500CM.
