Default [Q] Rename Photo/Video Files by Date Taken

I have about 2000 photos and videos Im trying to get sorted in the order I took them. Problem is Ive used different phones or camera apps to take them. So I have files named IMG2013, 2013_, VID2013, etc. I have tried QuickPic and their sorting options with no luck. I also tried the Fix Date feature and that didnt do it either.

Is there an app or a way to use the EXIF date taken and rename them according to that? I dont have the patience to go file by file. I have the pics on the SD card and on my Computer so I would think there are options to batch rename them.
