Ricoh 126c Flex - Say What?

Any of you fine gents have some tips, history, pointers, opinions, witty anecdotes and thoughts on the Ricoh 126c Flex. Also is shooting 126 these days possible? I am not and never was into 126 so quite literally have not a clue about this camera that an old friend of mine received as a gift. I am just looking for information for him. Cheers and thanks y'all.

I think Lomo still produces 126 films and they develop them too. Other labs (drug store chains) normally dont take 126 anymore, at least here in Germany.

Edit: I think I was wrong. A quick search didnt produce any results. 126 is gone for the moment. Nobody produces it. However, if you have the cartridges, it's possible to re-fill them with 35mm film, there's a description on the www. Or sign the petition to have Ferrania back producing 126:

I have an old magazine advert for the 126C Flex - the tagline is 'For guys in the know, it's RICOH!' and the text '..High performance. Satisfying performance. Everytime. Anytime, anywhere, the guy with the RICOH is ready!'

So it sounds like one hell of an exciting machine. Seems to take hot-shoe flash and flashcubes, has interchangeable lenses (although I've never seen one in the wild) and TTL metering. I'm guessing it's a pretty rare beast.
