That's not true, the camera you obviously refer to has gyros for three axis. The other two are software stabilized.

Show me those gyros.

I am not talking about software stabilization. I am saying that the gyro sensors are solid state as opposed to an (electro-) mechanical device. They are actually called "solid-state angular rate sensor." A "gyro" is a spinning, gimbled mass that maintains its upright position through intertia. There are gyro-stabilized Steadican units.
