The eye cup on my 1d mk11 manages to slide of when i carry my camera on my shoulder. Would it be ok to put a little bit of model glue on it to hold it in place?

Just put some layers of electrical tape either side of the viewfinder, this should make it nice and tight without having to glue it.

Use clear nail polish instead. When needed, it's easier to remove than model glue.

Hope this helps.

I did this several months ago and it works great. My eyecup hasn't budged since. :D

Gaffer tape between the eyepiece and the body.
