Old!? That's a large format camera. It uses 4x5" film that's gonna beat the crap out of any digital SLR. :D

Cathay Photo should have them. Not cheap, not easy to use.

For a start, these might be good. ;)

Heheh, these are medium format only. :) And I have access to the last one, the Mamiya RB67. No light meter, either you must have very good eyes or carry a light meter around. Think it's more suited for studio use. :D

Is that the kind of camera those photographers in the past (Ansel Adams etc) used?

Professional landscape photographers today still uses it, it is not obsolete yet. The large format allows very large enlargements (beyond your typical 8x10, 10x15, etc). And tonality of the image is much better too.
