TechSmith SnagIt is one of the best (paid) screencasting apps for Windows. It has all the regular screen capture options, and a built-in editor with which you can add captions, watermark, crop and resize images.
I grabbed a copy of Snagit 7 in 2007 when its makers, TechSmith offered it for free when Snagit 8 was launched. Now, version 9 has been launched, and TechSmith is giving away TechSmith 7.2.5 for free again. As I write this, I am downloading it, and will have screenshots up in a few minutes.
