THAT image was a frame from a TV video camera.

http://space.stackexchange.com/questions/3012/who-installed-the-camera-on-the-moon-to-film-the-first-step

For still photography in the special Hasselblad 500's  " ... for black and white they used 70mm perforated Kodak Panatomic-X ‘fine-grained’ film with an ASA rating of 80. For color, they could’ve used any combination of Kodak Ektachrome SO–68, Kodak Ektachrom SO–121, and Kodak 2485, the latter of which featured a ‘super light-sensitive’ ASA rating of 1,600."

wasn't it an autofocus camera with a wireless remote and flash trigger ?
