The Minolta Dynax 505si Super is a light autofocus SLR camera for 35mm film made by Minolta. It is the same camera body as the Minolta Maxxum XTsi for the American and the Minolta Alpha Sweet for the Japanese market. A simplified version was marketed as the Minolta Dynax 505si / Maxxum HTsi Plus.

Its distinguishing features are the "cust" functions, 9 programs for different exposure preferences, and the eye start function (autofocus starts working when the viewfinder is moved towards the eye). Unloading and reloading a film is no problem with this camera. A special version of it is the Dynax 505si Super QD DATE panorama which is switchable to a second exposure format, a panorama format. The camera was made in Malaysia.
