    I once got away with 1/8 on a Pentax 67 MLU'ed (90mm)- that was partly dumb luck, but the photo was worth the chance. I'd use 1/4 or 1/8 on a F3/4/5 in a pinch, I wouldn't waste MF with such a low probability of success- 1/15 maybe on 43mm.

    On 35mm, 2 seconds "freehand" and 8 seconds while resting elbows on my knees. Granted, these are not things I do regularly. Usually, I'm fine with 1 second.

    I do not bother to hand hold for exposures longer than 1/30 second.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Is it cheating if you're using a new IS lens? I've gotten 1/5 seconds with my 70-300L on my EOS 3 (I've also gotten 1.5 seconds with my 15-85 on my 7D, but that's not film so I won't mention it)

    I can jump up-and-down on one leg while rubbing my tummy with my left hand and drink a warm carbonated beverage at the same time... and never burp, belch, or blow!

    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    In 35mm I've actually hand-held 1 second, and very rarely. I only do it if there are no other options and I really want the picture, and usually the image is acceptable.
    I've done it standing, holding my breath, while pulling my arms in against my body and the camera pressed firmly against my face.

    ...and I never do it if I'm low on caffiene - I don't function well caffiene-free.

    I'm assuming what you're really asking is, "how long...without a tripod?"
    Laying on the ground, frontside that is, looking ahead, BOTH elbows planted firmly down on ground for balence, holding camera firmly to face while looking through viewfinder, should enable as long as 1/8 of a second with an SLR. It does so with me when I'm without my 'pod.
