    If you have searched for a cheap rig for your camera you most likely have runned into the FilmCity Brand on eBay.
    They cost very little but still include a follow focus, Cage and so on.

    IMO a rig is not "needed" for any camera. Nor is a follow focus. But it is an interesting way of filming and a bit of fun if you have some spare cash in your gear account.
    Thats why I went for the cheapest one I could find.

    My particular model is made for the m4/3 BMCC and of course as well the EF BMCC/BMPC.
    But they do sell modells for the BMPCC, GH4 and just your generic Mirrorless/DSLR as well. And the review will probably give you an idea of the brand and its quality all together.

    Ive seen that the specific modell for the BMPCC is very expensive. A tip then is to look at the BMCC model and just use an overly sized cage or get a separate cage, could still end up much cheaper.

    EDIT:
    Here is a Quick video I made with it. The lens BTW only COSTs $10-20 and would work on m4/3.
