The mask is done with a sheet of plastic which has relief, that I burnt.

The film is 100ISO and the Sprocket Rocket is designed for 400ISO so I asked for an E06 process +2 stops: it came out really over-exposed, I just saved a few pictures at the scan. The photographer told me that the film was probably old (even the theoretically non-exposed parts of the film where exposed)

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!

    Nice concept with these photos! You probably didn't have to push the film 2 stops cause it looks like the photos were taken in sunny conditions. 100 ISO film in the sprocket rocket works fine in full daylight

    thx @marcus_loves_film. Indeed the sun was shining, I still need to practice to guess the proper EV.

    @aguillem in full sun exposure are usually between 13-15 EV. With the sprocket rocket's 1/100 shutter you can safely use 100 ISO film at either aperture to get the exposure pretty close. I've used 400 ISO color negative film in full sun before and got over exposed, but useable negatives.
