I use CamStudio, also. It actually makes AVI's or SWF's, not "mpegs".
You can make the resulting file size smaller by using one of the Microsoft codecs and tweaking the video rates and audio settings before recording. The video won't be as smooth as with the CamStudio codec, but it will be good enough.
I recorded this with the MS MP4 V2 codec and with my mic audio set to 11.025 Khz, 8-bit mono (Setting the audio to this low mono saves file size almost as much as the video settings.):
I agree that CamStudio rocks! (and it's 100% free!)
