A collapsible and adjustable tripod for support of a camera or other apparatus is disclosed. The tripod includes a central column having three sides, each side having a channel longitudinally formed therein. Three leg assemblies, each comprising a leg member and a brace, unfold to support the tripod and collapse to a closed position within the channel in each side of the central column. A first latch mechanism associated with each leg assembly allows the top of each leg member to be slidable within each channel and lockable in a series of positions within each channel. Each brace is pivotably mounted to the bottom of the central column. A second latch mechanism allows the opposite end of each brace to be slidable along the leg member and lockable in a series of positions on each leg member. A neck telescopically extends from the top of the central column. A third latch mechanism allows the neck to be lockable in a series of positions above the top of the column.
