Given that some of my photography is deliberate low-light hand-held "painting with light" by moving the camera during exposure I think the answer is somewhere around 30-40 seconds - I've done much longer than that whilst pan/tilting the camera on a tripod though.

However in the more conventional sense of attempting to obtain a focused and relatively clear image: I believe 1 second was my max - but I was propped against a wall at the time and could stabilise the camera. It worked: for some limited values of "worked" - there was an image, the content was identifiable; it was not a good image, and certainly not one I'd own up to in public

Ive experimented with this kind of photography as well. It can be really interesting. Here is one of my favorites
