My guess: When you load up Premiere, you have a lot of stuff running in background memory and cpu, just waiting to give you instant gratification when you want it, so there is a lot of overhead to clash with the capture process.

Chris summed it up nicely - Adobe Premiere is a huge program, it does a lot of things. But in order for it to be ready to do all of that at the click of the mouse, it has to load a lot of stuff, stuff that keeps your CPU busy and eats up your RAM even when you don't use them; they just sit there on standby.

Regarding your other question: no, it does not use any other file format, the resulting file will be an MPEG2 transport type file with an extension of m2t. Capturing a tape to the computer (DV or HDV) is basically not a decompression process, it's rather a file transfer - just like you would transfer a file from an external hard drive or flash drive, there is no alteration of any kind - not within a PC. Now if we would talk Mac, the file is wrapped around, forming a QuickTime file, but that's another story.
