I have this problem where my scene render is blank, and I think I've figured out why, but it's weird. I set my scene camera to the actual camera object:

camera set correctly

But when I press f12 the render is blank. Not black, but transparent. Then for some reason, the camera object switches to 'bulb' by itself

enter image description here

Please help me out, this makes no sense.

    $\begingroup$ @Amir Thanks for your comment, but I'm not using any scripts and I only have on camera in the scene, so I'm pretty sure my problem is different. $\endgroup$

This is because the Bulb object is bound to the marker Jump. See this answer for details.

To fix it, you can either remove the marker (press X while hovering over it), or select your camera object and press Timeline header > View > Bind camera to markers (or press CtrlB in the timeline area).
