Windows 7: Recording your desktop as a movie

i use CamStudio (which is free) to capture the original file. This results in a huge .avi file.

I then use HandBrake (which is free) to encode the .avi to an MP4 file which is quite small.

Now that we have all these choices, is there any of these programs which records directly as MP4?
Thank you all
