Camera for caving

Hi,

I'm looking for camera for underground photography (mostly caves). Since I'm not always able to use tripod, it should allow me taking photos from hand (of course I know that such photos will have significantly lower quality).

Until now I was using camera from my Samsung S10e phone, but I'm looking for something which would give me better quality in such low light environment. I was thinking about mirrorless camera, is it a good way?

It is important that camera should be able to withstand cave conditions such as 100% humidity, heavy rain or water pouring from ceiling.

I was thinking about Sony A7 III, but I don't know if it would survive such hard conditions. That Sony is my upper budget limit for body. For lenses I was thinking about fixed 24mm or something similar for not more than 1/2 of Sony A7 III price. What would you recommend for such use-case?

Or maybe I won't get much better quality with mirrorless camera than Samsung S10e (or some more recent Samsung phone) camera when not using tripod?

Samsung Galaxy S10 Sony a7 III
