What? $50 used. That's insane. Sure, fig rigs are good but i think a good tripod matters more. Why not just get a good tripod and then make a diy fig rig/pvc thing. That or save up for a glidecam/other stabilizer, but only if you really want to do only follow cams.
And yeah 50mm is way too long to do follow cams unless you're insanely good.
