Anniverseries on Feb 20th

For the heck of it:

1962:  First photo taken by a human from space - shot of earth by John Glenn with rebadged Minolta Hi-Matic  (I believe Gargarin's capsule had no window)

1985:  the Minolta Maxxum 7000 (in north America) - world's first intergrated AF camera,  was released on this date - (or possibly announced. Can't find where I read that date now, but I saw it the day I noticed the John Glenn article, and remembered it as being the same date.)
