Q. What exactly is a camera module?
A camera module is an image sensor integrated with a lens, control electronics, and an interface like CSI, Ethernet, or plain raw low-voltage differential signaling.
Q. What is Optical vs Digital Zoom?
-There are two types of zoom: Optical vs Digital. Optical zoom is used while taking a picture using a camera to get a close shot of the subject without moving physically closer. Digital zoom is a part of digital cameras, and camcorders, which help to crop the entire image, and then digitally enlarge the size of the viewfinder of the portion that is needed to zoom in on.
Phones use digital zoom which actually degrades the photo quality while on the other, this module will use Optical zoom which means it will not reduce the quality of the image even at the max optical zoom.
