There are currently two different ways that you can take a screenshot with your Galaxy S III with neither one of them being holding the power button and volume down button at the same time (which is the normal Android way to take a screenshot). Method one for taking a screenshot is close to other Android devices while method two uses Samsung’s features called “motions”.
