I have gotten hold of Canon 5D Mark III and trying to use AEB.

I would like to know if camera can take multiple shots with just one single press of shutter release instead of pressing multiple times or keep pressing?

IF so please let me know where I can find that setting.

I have not tried this but maybe it is possible using an intervalometer? –  Nicoli Mar 27 at 18:34

According to page 170 of the manual the only way to have it automatically do it on its own is to remote/timer setting with 2 second or 10 second timer. This will result in all three shots taken with one press. Otherwise, you have to hold down in continuous modes or press three times in single shot modes.

Using a tripod with a wired remote and holding the button down in continuous drive mode is about the closest you will get to what I think you are looking for. If you are trying to do it handheld, just hold down the shutter button until the required number of frames have been taken. –  Michael Clark Mar 28 at 1:12
