You might start here...a new model of the Z Force is supposed to be released later this year.

My LG G4 bit the dust recently unexpectedly and I ended up getting a Huawei Honor 6x. At first I was all like I'll just keep it until I find something better, but it's really grown on me and I decided to keep it. It's got decent performance, a very nice screen, a respectable camera and the battery lasts two to three days. My G4 barely made it a day and I'm not a heavy phone user. The fact I got it sub $200 probably helped too.

It's gonna have to be a flagship if you want great cameras. The Galaxy S8 is really good in that sense, although the battery isn't that great (3000Mah).
Maybe you would consider using a battery case on pretty much any of the current top flagships?

If not, the Xiaomi Mi Mix also has a pretty decent camera (although not comparable with the S8) and comes with a 4400Mah battery. It's due to be refreshed soon so you might get better specs then, or at least a discounted price on the existing one.

The OnePlus 5 camera is really good too, and comes with a 3300Mah battery so it's somewhere in between. It's just out though, and some early adopters are reporting the usual teething issues.

One to look out for soon would be the Essential Phone. Though the battery is still only 3000Mah, its a modular phone of sorts, kinda like the MotoMods and already has the option of a 360 video camera attachment that you can buy alongside the phone for $50 extra. This could mean you don't have to worry about the quality of the internal camera, as we may see some modular ones pop up that are far superior to any existing phone cameras.

I had an LG G4 and the way i was using it it would only last 3 hours at the most... not good when you need to record 4-6 hours of video each about a minute or two or when you wanna live stream between recording videos

I haven't found any phone with a battery larger than 3500 mah... I would use at least double that in a day just video recording and live streaming... plus the phones with bigger batteries don't have a good camera... the LG G4 i had was becoming crappy for use as a dedicated video camera so I wiped it to factory and its doing better now... I've passed it on to mum though since it was free and wasn't being used and she needed a phone

Keep in mind battery size isn't all that matters to battery life. My Galaxy S II Plus with 1650mah battery lasts twice the battery life of a Galaxy S6 with 2550mah! So the screen size, processors, versions of Android also play a big factor as well!
Unfortunately I am the kind of person who only owns Samsung Galaxy phones and Nokia phones. And as for Samsung phones, NONE of mine are even retailed in North America (my daily drivers are Galaxy A8, Galaxy S5 Exynos Octa, Galaxy S II Plus)

You'll do well to find a phone with double the battery capacity of pretty much all the current flagships.
Have you considered a battery case?

Or maybe even a dedicated camera? Seems like an impossible specs sheet to be honest.

Have you looked at the Blu Energy XL. 5000Mah of power. 3 of those will put an standard IBM battery shame. You can also charge otems off the phone.

I have a Chinese INEW L4 android which has a 5000Mah battery. The camera is just OK but in low light conditions the Chinese phone cameras struggle.
