Auto shooting mode makes the J3 as easy to use as any compact camera. In this mode, the camera does all of the work, taking care of all of the shooting settings, so all you have to do is worry about your subject. 

Program is just one of the "creative" shooting modes offered by the J3. This is still an automatic shooting mode, but it gives you control over some of the camera's settings. Shutter speed and aperture are controlled by the camera and adjusted around your settings. This offers a little more creativity.

Manual mode provides the user with total control over the camera. Allowing even the most skilled photographer all the creative freedom that they need, the J3 is advanced enough to handle anything you can throw at it. 

The rest of the shooting modes under the "creative" category include some basic and scene modes: Program Auto, Shutter-Priority, Aperture-Priority, Manual, Night Landscape, Night Portrait, Backlighting, Easy Panorama, Soft, Miniature Effect and Selective Color.
