Open source alternative to MagicZoom or Magneto ProZoom?

Are there any good open source product viewers? I'm trying to build a very simple site with that has a products section. I'd like to display a few views for each product, and the tools I've found so far are magic zoom and Magneto, but both cost a bit. I'm not opposed to paying, if these are the best, but given how many lightbox clones there are, I can't believe there isn't something opensource and better. Has anybody used these tools, or found better alternatives?

Magento is free, actually. Depending in your tech skill, you can set itup pretty quickly, although custom templates etc. have a learning curve.

Hmm - yeah, there had to be an open-source version. jqzoom - it even has a motorcycle demo.

The combination of Drupal + Ubercart module has produced some really nice looking sites.

There is also a pretty active forum section on their website dedicated specifically to theming here so you'll have lots of support for making it look nice.
