Is it supposed to take 3 shots when you press the shutter? With both by 40D and 5D, you need to press the shutter 3 times.

I use a 40D and you will need to press the shutter button 3 times as Big Bri mentions

I have the 600d and when i take 3 bracketed exposures i set the shutter to continuous firing then i only have to press and hold the shutter button and it takes three bracketed shots in quick succession. That way i can hand hold the camera with no ghosting when i merge the images.

And one more tip, if you put it on the self timer with motor drive and live view (or mirror lock up) on you get a handy tripod feature. It allows a delay from when you press the shutter then takes the shots in a row.
