Question says it all. At what point is a tripod redundant?

Let's say, if using a 24-70mm 2.8 at 70mm it is obvious that you need to use a tripod with 1/2 second exposure.

But at what point would a tripod be useless?

When you are really tired to carry it:-D

125th second? 250th second? 500th second? 1000th second.

Just curious as to others thoughts.

Well, that depends. The only lens I can use to shoot 1/2 second is 16-35mm VR.

There is a certain shutter speed at which point even if you have 10 stops of VR you can't go beyond. For me it is 1/2 second.
