There is no 'point of view'. There are etymological dictionaries which give you the answer. The word is of Latin origin.
Meaning: "vaulted building; arched roof or ceiling," from Latin camera "a vault, vaulted room" (source also of Italian camera,… See more definitions.

@Samrani No, 'camera' is not the "source from which pictures are taken". It refers to the way the first cameras were built, a gadget with a small 'chamber' inside for the film. You can find all this in the link I added.
