Short description of error

In the Outliner window, there is a camera icon.
Which enables or disables the display of the object in the render.
All objects have this icon.
And, objects that are not rendered.


The camera icon of these objects does not change anything in the visualization.
The question is debatable whether this is a mistake.
Logically, this is a mistake.

Change this situation. For example, the icon for such objects is always off or not visible.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

To see, add these objects to the scene, render.

Thanks for the report, but this is more like a UI suggestion than a bug.

Empties, cameras, speakers, curves and lights render visibility can actually affect the render in specific cases. Armatures and lattices not as far as I know, but I don't think it's particularly helpful to hide the icons for them.
