The timing is supposedly pretty interesting also, but that is not the question. I'm asking about the lunar lift-off.

I'm interested in knowing if it was also a Hasselblad video camera, if that even exists, I'm not sure.

The liftoffs were viewed using the TV cameras mounted on the rovers. These cameras were made by RCA. The "model name" was RCA J-Series Ground-Commanded Television Assembly. The operations and checkout manual for the camera can be read here. This is an image of the cover of the manual.
