Rons Renamer is a tool for renaming many files in one go, using rules like search and replace. Batches of files can be 10's to 1000's, and span multiple directories, with an unlimited number of rules that can be combined to achieve almost any result.
Rons Renamer has been designed from concept to execution to be simple and fast to use, without compromising on power; in short to make a difficult job as easy as possible.
Aaron, full recommendations on the "Ron's Renamer" program. Unbelievable it really provides full versatility processing changes on all files one swift sweep, without delays or falling on its head, all of which all my camera software Panasonic, Fuji and now Canon utterly failed to provide.

Rons Renamer is free to download, but it contains some restrictions in its Lite version that can only be unlocked with a Pro license key (see Differences between Lite and Pro version).
Why not give it a try? The download is free and the installation simple.
The functionality to read EXIF tags (quickly) came from Simon McKenzie on The Code Project.
