I am going to order raspberry pi zero w, camera and memory card with operating system installed. Which operating system I should choose Raspbian or Kodi? If it does not matter I will choose Raspbian.

I'm using Raspian Stretch, but it shouldn't matter too much so long as there is some sort of Camera control. There are lots of instructions around for Raspian, and a tutorial provided by the supplier I used here in AU. Setting up the camera is laid out in the section here

I've only used Raspbian!

Yes. Kodi is a multimedia player Operating System used to have plugged to the TV and playing films and so on. Raspbian is a full GNU/linux operating system you'll be able to use as camera and many more: server, multimedia player, trail cam... Use the Desktop Raspbian and not the Lite version.

Then you need to go to Menu >> System tools >> Raspi config and activate the camera in the second tab "Interfaces"
