Best software to ingest photos as well as videos ?

I'm a Windows 10 user, using Capture One Pro as a developping tool. It may happen that I shoot a short video clip aside many photos. And when importing, I like things to be organised by capture date. The point is : C1P is unable to guess video capture dates and thus, is not able to rename video files. So I cannot use it for importing.

Right now, I'm using the Windows 10 import built-in feature but :

  • If I want one folder per date, it cannot create parent folders, for months and years, typically
  • C1P's import really sucking, having multiple folders renders the import process really painful...
  • unlless I reimport everything from root but it takes ages

So I need a Windows software to :

  • import photos and videos from SD cards
  • import from network drives or any folder
  • if possible, with a UI adequate to UHD/4K screens

I'd like the import tool doing only this, not cataloguing, editing or such : keep it simple yet good at its task.

I can pay but not too much.
