Shooting at any aperture smaller than f/5.6 with a 1 inch sensor is not recommended. Past f/5.6 you are getting into diffraction. You can sometimes get away with f/8, but I try to avoid it when possible. Shooting mid-day is certainly possible to keep the aperture open to f/5.6 or more.

Using terms like more or less with aperture is confusing for many people. Smaller or wider, open or close, or giving specific numbers is more clear. I would say use f4 to F5.6 and never smaller than F6.3.
