In one of the most impressive displays of broadcast-quality on Twitch to date, a birdwatching streamer has showcased his incredible multi-camera setup.

Streamers on Twitch are often trying to push the boundaries of creative content in hopes of capturing the masses and making a name for themselves. 

Whether it be through over the top characters like Dr Disrespect, or various awkward antics, streamers are always attempting to carve out their own niche on the live-streaming platform.

While DamianExplores may not have the goal to explode on the platform, he’s certainly pushing the boundaries of what Twitch can provide, and showcased just how impressive the fidelity of a live IRL broadcast can be during his October 9 stream.

With his camera equipment set up on the side of an innocuous gravel road, he intended to highlight various species of birds and describe them in detail to those intrigued in the chat.

“This gives you an idea of how the stream works,” Damian said as he transitioned from his regular handheld camera to the higher resolution device atop a tripod.

Zooming in on an American robin, “a fairly common bird,” he explained, viewers got a glimpse at just how remarkable the technological capabilities of his streaming rig can be.

Broadcasting at 1080p and 60FPS, he rapidly swapped from one camera to another and zoomed straight in to an unsuspecting feathered creature. 

Every little detail of the bird came right through on stream, despite the extensive distance from the target in focus. It almost appeared as if the streamer was standing right next to his feathered subject.

“We do mostly birds,” he stated, before elaborating on the various other engaging topics that he tries to cover with his community.

From observing meteor showers to a lunar eclipse, Damian is a fascinating streamer to follow for a refreshingly unique approach to streaming on the Twitch platform.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
