The Raspberry Pi Camera v2 is the new official camera board released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
The Raspberry Pi Camera Module v2 is a high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed add-on board for the Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens.
The Raspberry Pi Zero now comes complete with a camera port! Using the new Raspberry Pi Zero Camera Adapter, you can now use a Raspberry Pi camera with your Zero.
It's capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video. The focal length of the Raspberry Pi Camera (the distance from the front of the lens to the closest object which is in focus) is around 50cm (according to this Raspberry Pi project page).
It attaches to the Raspberry Pi via one of the small sockets on the board's upper surface and uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras.
