    Point Into

    Suppose the context is someone secretly filming activity in a bedroom. I expect a sentence like this:

    "A camera pointed to the bedroom window."

    But a google search turned up this sentence also:

    "A camera pointed into the bedroom window."

    in which "point into" is used instead of "point to". How is "into" different from "to"?
