I think the OP wants to set the file created/modified timestamps to the date/time the image was captured. That's very different from embedding the date/time of capture in the file name.

Exactly, and you just gave me a feature idea for next weekend 

Have fun with Time Zones, Daylight Savings and those horrible FAT/NTFS inconsistencies

The fact that EXIF doesn't make any TZ provision won't help either

If you were very clever, you could assume that the camera was always set to the local time zone and use GPS data and a daylight savings time algorithm to look up the time zone and calculate the UTC time...
