around this issue You can't. A Surface is the producer side of a producer-consumer pair, and there can only be one producer at a time. You can provide camera frames, render in software with Canvas, or render in hardware with OpenGL, but you can't mix them up on a single Surface.
You have a few options. One approach is to use a second SurfaceView that overlaps the first (via a FrameLayout). For this to work, you must specify the Z order for the second Surface -- if you don't, the system will see that you have two Surfaces attempting to occupy the same space, and only one will win. Use the setZOrderMediaOverlay() method to place the new Surface in front of the camera preview but behind the View UI. You also need to change the Surface's color format from the default RGB565 to one that supports transparency; setColorFormat(TRANSLUCENT) or RGB8888 will work. Make sure you erase the Surface to transparent black with an appropriate color transfer mode.

help you fix your problem There are two reason why your image and preview may appear blurry
1) the way you are settings the picture size and preview size is wrong. You have to query the supported sizes and decide which is the best size for you and set size from the list that your have got. You cannot give arbit values. Check this sample app for implementation details - https://github.com/josnidhin/Android-Camera-Example
code :
private void setCamFocusMode(){

    if(null == mCamera) {

    /* Set Auto focus */ 
    Parameters parameters = mCamera.getParameters();
    List<String>    focusModes = parameters.getSupportedFocusModes();
    } else

Don't lock auto-exposure; if you do, the camera is stuck with whatever settings it had when you locked it, which may be too dark
