Adding dioptic filter to the lens will damage the lens when the lens  contract to its position.

Right but I would just be careful to not power the camera off while lense is on. That would work right?

Could you provide some links to an adapter please? I’m new to all this.

You are risking your investment by putting filters on the lens. 

Look at the size of the filter thread  that can be seen in front of lens mark like 52 mm ( this is the diameter for the filter )

Look at amazon for this size and select that fits your budget.

You better buy a DSLR camera so that you can use filters instead of buying lenses.

Re: Powershot sx530 HS lenses

This one has Filters by Canon that are safe. But no lenses. Ya know? I just want a fisheye lense pretty much. I am a beginner so I definitely am not planning on spending 600 on a lense, haha. 

 

This is what I want, can you please tell me what you think about it?

Re: Powershot sx530 HS lenses

If you put a lens with adapter most problem is vignetting ( blurry near edges ). If I am not mistaken this lens ( SX 530 HS )  is not interchangeable like a DSLR, so it needs adapter to place the fisheye lens to 530 lens.  As I said dioptic filter is better than expensive lens but not on pop up lens only for DSLR .
