I found this 8 MP camera but i don't know if it would work with my Raspberry Pi Zero W
it's described as following:

Raspberry Pi V2 Official 8 Megapixel HD Camera Board With IMX219 PQ CMOS Image Sensor
The Raspberry Pi Camera Module Rev 2.0 is a high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed add-on board for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It’s capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video. It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSI interface

All software is supported within the latest version of Raspberry Operating System
and I found another one more cheaper but they didn't mention anything about Pi 0
5MP Raspberry Pi Camera Module Rev 1.3 with Cable
Fully Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B & B+.
Plug-n-Play camera for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B & B+.
what's your advice for me ?

The CSI-2 connections are the same for all Pi models, only the connectors differ for Pi0[W] compared to the other PIs.
You can use any v1/v2 camera with all Pi models, you just need the matching cable.
For comparison of v1/v2 cameras see this posting: ... 7#p1528435
