Turn to face involves rotating so that the object's center point is pointed at the target.

Point at involves both rotating and turning forward/backward so that the object's center axis forms a straight line to the target.

The difference becomes more clear if you try pointing at/turning to face targets higher or lower than the object.

point at means that the cam will turn and face the object on a horizontal and vertical grid. Turn to tou turn to face in the direction of the object but it still could be a above the cam
