I was just curious what people prefer when it comes to filters. What are the advantages and disadvantages of screw on filters or 4x4 filters, etc.

My personal camera is a sony Z1 -- I use a matte box, behind it a screw on UV filter. I do a fare amount of action and Visual effects, so it protects my glass. I've done some pretty strange things in the matte box to get the look I want and control depth of field (such as using two sheets of 2 stop ND to shoot wide open on a sunny day). Some times you just don't have the filters on set (but you have the gels -- not recommended) In any case the matte box will largely prevent reflection and glare on the surface of the filter. Generally they provide more shade then a standard lens shade.
