Android Question Place button on top of Camera preview

I have an app that takes a photo.
The app has a "Take picture" button - it looks exactly as described here in the screenshot:

But I see that the picture's preview is is somewhat unproportional.
I think the reason is the button.

Now my question is:
Is there a way that the button would be on top of the picture, so that the button wouldn't influence the picture preview?


edit: I want to add buttons "on top" and transpartent if possible - so basically what I need is what is shown in the screeshot here:

I had a look the above example, but I dont see how it was done there...

(I have set "Bring To Front" for the buttons and "Send To Back" for the Panel in the hope that would solve the problem, but it didn't work.)
