yes quite right:
Lighting: there is power so we can light the scene to a varying degree and with a varying degree of effort....but generally we will need to operate in fairly low light. This as far as I am concerned is the key point...I need something that can operate in fairly low light.
Batteries - typically a 7 or 8 hour day
Damp - damp and humid: probably need to buy a case or as suggested sheath it in plastic bags.
Knocks & bumps - it's not caving, but it will need to be robust.
Dirt - yes.

I can't help, but I noticed a lack of info on the following:-
Lighting - is there any?
Batteries - How long?
Damp - IP65, 66, 67 (splash, dip, dive?)
Knocks & bumps - is this caving, if so how will it be protected?
Dirt - there's going to be lots - and on hands!
Isn't the simplest solution is simply to put & use it in a sealable plastic
bag, (or two). Then to put that lot in a plastic jiffy bag to protect it
